Here are 5 reasons this New Jersey Aquarium should win Best Aquarium in the U.S.

USA Today is holding a vote for the Best Aquarium in America. Twenty total aquariums were nominated by USA today.

Nominees are submitted by a panel of experts. 10Best editors narrow the field to select the final set of nominees for the Readers’ Choice Awards. Last year, Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ was voted the #8 Aquarium in the country by USA Today. This year, the aquarium is campaigning to place higher, and we can help! With over 100 public aquariums in the country, it is an honor to make the top 20.

Aquariums should be entertaining and captivating to all ages. A good aquarium has a large variety of species, along with informative displays and interactive activities.

Adventure Aquarium is just minutes from Center City Philadelphia on the Camden Waterfront. It features one-of-a-kind exhibits with more than 15,000 aquatic species throughout two million gallons of water. The Aquarium is home to the largest collection of sharks in the Northeast. They are the only aquarium in the world to exhibit hippos. They are also one of only six facilities in the US to have Little Blue penguins as permanent residents. Adventure Aquarium is held to the absolute highest standards in animal care and exhibition.

They are truly one of the best in the country, so it makes sense that Adventure Aquarium is in the running for the Best Aquarium In The U.S.

You can vote once a day for your favorite, voting ends March 6 at noon. The winner will be announced on Friday, March 17. Adventure Aquarium currently holds the #3 spot. A hack: you can vote once a day per device…interpret that as you will.

Our local aquarium is so special. Let’s reiterate some reasons why you should vote for it.
