Things To Do in NJ on Veterans Day Weekend: Mermaids, Trains, Disney on Ice

Whether or not Veterans Day weekend is a three-day holiday for your family, there's plenty to do throughout New Jersey. Check out the Train Festival at Camden Children's Garden, or take a ride on DiDonato's Magical Holiday Express. Plus explore the cockpits of historical planes at The Aviation Hall of Fame, and spend a day under the sea with live mermaids at Adventure Aquarium.

There are plenty of opportunities to interact with Disney favorites, with performances of Disney Junior Holiday Party on Tour and Disney on Ice: Road Trip Adventures

Monday is Veterans Day. If the kids have a half-day or day off, they can learn more about this special day at Veterans Day Storytime or Ocean County Veterans Day Parade.

Check out our Fall Fun Guide for NJ Kids for more options, including New Jersey Restaurants Open for Thanksgiving. And look to our November GoList and event calendar for a complete listing of happenings this weekend and beyond.
