The ultimate family-friendly attraction in New Jersey.

Turtle Back Zoo has a zoo, aquarium, aviary, and petting zoo all in one place. With 20 different exhibits and hundreds of animals to see, you could easily spend an entire day here. The African Adventure exhibit features hyenas, giraffes, lions, and penguins and is the largest part of the zoo. Check out the Asian and Australian exhibits to see even more exotic creatures. You may also like the Wild New Jersey exhibit where you can explore the network of trails through the local wildlife reservation. Keep your eyes peeled for bobcats, bald eagles, porcupines, owls, and more. The butterfly pavilion, touch tank, and farm provide ways to interact with the animals at the zoo, and are perfect for kids and adults.

This is one of the top attractions you should consider while you're in northeastern New Jersey. Admission is less than $20 per person, and children under 2 can enter for free. Turtle Back Zoo is open daily beginning at 10 am with varying closing times depending on the season. Visit this entertaining zoo the next time you visit New Jersey.
