Planning a road trip does not allow for inconveniences like rain, rain and more rain.  So off we went last week to visit the Jenkinson’s Aquarium in Point PLeasant,  NJ and the Popcorn Park Zoo in Forked River, NJ.

The Popcorn Park Zoo is a 7-acre zoo. The Zoo is a part of the Humane Society. Even though it is relatively small, it houses over 200 rescued animals, and even includes a pet adoption center. Popcorn Park Zoo is truly one of a kind. It was established in 1977 as a refuge for wildlife, exotic and farm animals that were abused, ill, injured, handicapped, elderly or exploited.

Jenkinson’s Aquarium is a privately owned facility located on the boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. Opening in June of 1991. Jenkinson’s Aquarium is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums ( AZA). A
