This Zoo In New Jersey Is Also A Restaurant And It’s Fun For The Whole Family

The Turtle Back Zoo is one of New Jersey’s best spots for animal lovers – a thriving, reasonably-priced zoo in the middle of the Essex County Zoological Society. Inside, you’ll be able to meet animals great and small, and kids will love learning about the unique wildlife we share the world with. But you’ll probably get hungry while you’re there – and at this zoo, you’ll have much better choices than the standard zoo chicken fingers. That’s because the Turtle Back Zoo shares the park with the best zoo restaurant in New Jersey, McLoone’s Boathouse. This small chain of upscale seafood restaurants offers a unique nautical theme with delicious food that will make a visit to this zoo memorable for both animal lovers and gourmets alike.
