New Jersey Steel PierIs your family in need of a little break from the normal chaos this fall? Whether your kids’ school lets out or not, consider taking a day trip to any of these New Jersey family attractions, courtesy of our crew at Value Van & Car Rental.

1. Adventure Aquarium

With over 8,500 types of water creatures on site, the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ, is a great way to spend a family day. The aquarium is located only about 1.5 hours south of Newark, making it an easy drive in your minivan rental. You can spend the day experiencing close encounters at the Touch-A-Shark tank, or watch the fun and friendly penguins scamper about. Eat lunch at the Feeding Frenzy Cafe, or spend some time finding just the right souvenir at the gift shop.

2. Newark Museum

Interested in staying a little closer to home but still having a fun and educational experience? Then check out the Newark Museum. Explore cultural exhibits from all around the world, including artwork from Asia, science exhibits, antiques, and more. You may also want to check out what events are happening so you can be sure to plan your trip around them if there’s a special presentation you don’t want to miss.

3. Steel Pier

Before the weather turns frigid, Steel Pier is a great place for family fun. Ride the amusement park rides, treat yourself to a hot dog, or even take a helicopter ride to see it all from up above. You’ll build memories and enjoy a break from the norm. Steel Pier is located in Atlantic City, which is about 2 hours south of Newark.
