Summer Fun at Jenkinson's Boardwalk #JenksAmbassador

Saturday, July 5, 2014
Jenkinson's is THE place for summer fun at the Jersey shore. With amenities that you won't find anywhere along the Jersey coast, Jenkinson's, or "Jenks" as we locals affectionately call it, is your one-stop shop for summer entertainment.

On Monday, I took my daughters to Jenkinson's. We generally go several times during the summer season. Sometimes we'll duck into the aquarium on a hot day. Other days we hit the beach to cool off. Monday's visit consisted of the aquarium, the amusement rides, mini-golf, and the evening kiddie beach show.

We started our day at the aquarium. I love the shark tank. This guy was pretty menacing.

Another Jenkinson's Aquarium favorite are the penguins.

I am always mesmerized by the moon jellyfish.

After the aquarium, it was on to the amusement rides. Our first stop was The Tornado and we were lucky enough to snag a spot all the way in the back...the best place to be, in my opinion.

We headed to the swings next. Although I generally don't go on the rides that go round and round, I hopped on this time. I took a picture just after I buckled the kids and myself in, and then it was up, up, and away!

We boarded the Flitzen roller coaster, but first...we took a selfie.

I needed to slow the pace down a bit after 3 wild rides in a row. A relaxing train ride was just what I needed.

The boardwalk is no fun without a stroll through the Fun House.

Once we had our amusement ride fix, it was time for a little friendly competition on the mini-golf course.

Lastly, every Monday night, Jenkinson's hosts Kiddie Beach Shows at the South Stage beginning at 7 pm. There was originally a magic show on the scheduled but was replaced by children's musician Yosi. And to add even more fun to your Mondays, you can dine with Perky the Penguin, Jenkinson's Aquarium mascot from 4-7 pm at Pavillion.

We couldn't have asked for a better day. The weather was perfect. The boardwalk wasn't crowded, and the folks at Jenkinson's never disappoint.

Disclosure: As part of the #JenksAmbassador program, I received a voucher which included complimentary admission to the aquarium, mini-golf, and amusement rides including the Fun House. As always, all opinion included here are my own.
