Finding things to do for the entire family is sometimes hard. With the kids being such a wide range of ages I’m bound to have a bored one on my hands at some point during an outing. There are always exceptions to the rule though. Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ always gets the kids excited head out the door.
With two million gallons of fun, seven different touch exhibits, the countries only aquarium wtih a Great Hammerhead Sharks, 40-foot suspended Shark Tunnel, a 4D Theater and free live shows and up-close animal experiences daily, and it’s clear to see why a trip to Adventure Aquarium promises to deliver family memories that will last a lifetime.
We made our way over the Adventure Aquarium to visit Mighty Mike, a 14 foot, 800lb alligator. Mighty Mike is said to be the BIGGEST alligator on display outside of their home state of Florida. His exhibit allows visitors to get right up close, almost eye to eye while remaining safe behind the glass.
The Stingray Beach Club was the most popular exhibit for this visit. The last time we went to Adventure Aquarium Shae and Shaun were scared to touch the stingrays. This time around I couldn’t get them out of the area to see the rest of the sea creatures. Honestly I couldn’t keep their hands out of all the touch exhibits.
As my kids get older I’m finding that they appreciate these outings and events more. The educational tips and facts they learn along the way are tucked away for use later on like a quiz for dad or mom-mom and pop-pop.
If you happen to be in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area Adventure Aquarium is a definite family friendly stop you don’t want to miss.
