4 Reasons to Visit AAQ over the 4th of July Holiday Weekend


In honor of the 4th of July holiday, and because we’re just across the Delaware from where the whole thing started back in 1776, we wanted to give you the top 4 reasons you should visit Adventure Aquarium during the Independence Holiday Weekend.

We see this as a 5, count ’em, FIVE-day weekend beginning on Friday, June 30th and ending on the Tuesday, July 4th. The question is: How is your family going to spend those lovely summer days and nights??

#1. Come Independence Day Splash with us!

Join us on Saturday, July 1st from 5 PM to 9 PM for our 7th annual Independence Day Splash. Celebrate the patriotic weekend with extended hours and a DJ dance party. Then end the night with fireworks along the Camden Waterfront.

Looking for an exclusive experience? Come to our Members-only fireworks festivities on Friday, June 30.  Not a Member?  It’s not too late to join!


#2. Make it a Ferry Combo for More Fourth Fun

Can’t decide between checking out Philadelphia AND visiting AAQ? Do both – with a ferry ride in between! With the Ferry Combo ticket, you get all the underwater world fun and a nice ride on the Delaware River to visit Philly during the long historic holiday weekend.


#3. Fireworks on the Delaware 

If you haven’t seen a fireworks show on the Camden Waterfront, now is the time to go! Picture it: Beautiful fireworks with the birthplace of America as your backdrop – it doesn’t get any better than that!

There will be fireworks shows on Friday, June 30th, Saturday, July 1st and Tuesday, July 4th.  Shows are scheduled to begin at 9:30 pm each date.  So, visit us first, then grab a spot along the Camden Waterfront for a truly patriotic ending to a perfect aquarium day.


#4. We’re honoring military with a special discount

As a thank you to the men and women in our military, we are honored to offer a $4 discount on one-day admission tickets for active or retired military, disabled veterans, and military reservists, spouses and dependents.

Valid military personnel IDs and dependent IDs are required.  This offer valid at the Box Office only.


BONUS! #5. A visit to the underwater world

Since we’ll all be celebrating our nation’s independence with a 5-day weekend, here’s a 5th reason to celebrate with Adventure Aquarium! 8,500 aquatic animals, including sharks, sea turtles, hippos, penguins, stingrays and more! Well, that’s more like 8,500 more reasons but that would be a really long countdown.  *wink*

Any way you slice it, it’s going to be an amazing July 4th holiday weekend – made even better by a visit to Adventure Aquarium.  We can’t wait to see you and your family!
