Cape May Zoo:
Cape May, NJ

The charming Cape May County Zoo was created in 1978 within the Cape May County Park. At the time of the zoo’s opening, there were just a few basic animals. Over the years more and more animals were added.

Today the zoo consists of 550 animals representing 250 species with a beautiful playground for children.  It is such an enjoyable zoo, in fact, just as enjoyable as other expensive zoos, that you’d never believe that admission is free.
