When the weather isn’t going your way, you’re probably often stuck wondering just what to do with the kids. Luckily for Jersey shore-goers, there are lots of fun indoor attractions, aquariums and arcades for the little ones! Why sit home on a rainy day when there are exciting places at the shore with indoor amusements great for kids?

An Ocean City boardwalk staple, Gillian's Wonderland Pier has it all for kids and families looking for fun at the Jersey Shore! Packed with amusement rides, arcade games and much more, your kids will beg you to stay at this popular attraction within America's #1 family resort town!

An local best kept secret on the campus of Ocean County College, the Robert J Novins Plantarium was renovated in 2010 and offers exciting shows around the world of astronomy.
