A Great Zoo for KidsFlag review
One of the top 5 zoos in the US for kids, you could easily spend a day here. Feed stingray, or just pet them, at Stingray Bay. Ride a beautiful carousel. Or try feeding the giraffe! Big Horn Sheep roam the nearby mountains. This is a warm weather zoo, so no penguins or polar bears.
Tips for Families
You can bring coolers of food into the zoo- a great $$ saver!
