Swedesboro Off The Beaten Path
Our daughter loves animals, and I was searching for yet another zoo we could take her to when I came across the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, PA (the 6th she's visited). It is not a big zoo, but it was clean, well-maintained, and not overly pricey like the bigger zoos. You can get pretty close to the animals which is great for photos, but I would not think kids over 10 or 12 years old would be entertained for very long. There was plenty of free parking and a nice play area, as well as a picnic area. They have a small reptile house, pony rides, and a cafe. It is a great place to spend a couple of hours.Related to:
Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ was completely renovated in 2005. Open daily from 9:30-5pm it is well worth a visit. 200,000 square feet of shark tunnels, hippos, free-flying birds and sea life from around the world. My daughter loves the touch tanks, and I fed the manta rays by hand. She even got picked once to wade in the manta ray tank! The very brave, for an additional fee, can arrange to swim with the sharks. The penguins and seals have their own habitats outside. Only one of two aquariums in the country that have a hammerhead shark. There is a snack bar and a large gift shop.Related to:
