This week "Paws Farm" announced it is closing down and finding their animals new homes. I took my kids there and they've been there many times on trips with their schools. It provided great memories from their childhood. There are so many places in New Jersey where are parents took us and we took our kids. We asked our listeners to name their favorites. Some are still here and some are gone.
