There's a Reason This Zoo is Called the Best in AmericaFlag review
This has been an incredible zoo since I was a kid- and it continues to be so! So very much to see and do- we spent 5 1/2 hours here and didn't see it all! Desert dome is fabulous - and don't miss the exhibition below of creatures of the dark (bats, naked moles, etc). Terrific monkey/ ape enclosures, large cats exhibit, sea lions, one of the best aquariums in the country, giraffes, bears, penguins, petting zoo... I could go on and on. The animals here are so active, their enclosures are open (sometimes the people are the ones in a 'cage' so the animals can be more free to roam). Plan to spend an entire day when you visit.
Tips for Families
Stingray bay and IMAX theater are additional fee. Food here is expensive but you are allowed to bring you own in! Skyfari (sky gliders) and train rides available. Skyfari is superior and the best way to view the giraffes.
