Day Trip: Adventure Aquarium

Screenshot_2016-04-05-19-44-58-1

If you’re planning a visit to Philadelphia or simply looking for a fun day out with the kids, head to the Camden, NJ waterfront and check out the Adventure Aquarium.  Three full stories of exhibits await you at this hands-on, well laid-out aquatic wonderland.

Come face to face with sharks, sea turtles, sting rays and more in their enormous salt water tank, visit the African hippos and check out 2 very different species of penguins. There’s even a 4D movie if you enjoy getting sprayed in the face & having air blown at the back of your head… lol.

Check out the daily feeding schedules to hear more about the different animals and be sure to bring the kids to all of the “touch tanks” where they can pet sharks, stingrays, starfish and more.

There’s a reasonably priced food court offering the usual chicken fingers, pizza, pretzels, etc, or you can bring in your own lunch & snacks.  We enjoyed eating outside on the patio overlooking the river & the Philadelphia skyline or head out towards “Penguin Island” for another relaxing spot.

Discount tickets are available at your local AAA office ($22 for adults, $17 for kids) or keep an eye out for a Groupon.  The Aquarium is open daily from 10am to 5pm with parking right across the street for $10/day.  Check out their web site for all the details:  www.adventureaquarium.com
