Alongside Route 9 of the Garden State Parkway is the Cape May County Zoo, home to more than 250 species of animals in 85-acres of land. You can also release your inner ape and try out the Tree to Tree high ropes at the zoo!
The zoo offers private animal encounters when booked in advance and private guided tours by their knowledgeable hosts.
There is an onsite cafe serving anything a kid might ask for during a day out (including peanut butter and jam sandwiches with the crusts cut off)!
To make leaving the zoo all the more pleasurable by missing out the gift shop which many parents dread, you can pre-order and pre-pay for gift bags.
