Tips from locals
Essex County's Turtle Back Zoo was voted #1 Zoo in New Jersey with over 200 species representing animals from around the world.
Wonderful zoo with kids’ railroad. 28 min. drive. One of the benefits of staying on this side of the Hudson!
A lovely zoo that's the perfect size for kids -- plenty of animals to see but not too big or crowded that it's overwhelming.
