Best Zoo ever! You need two days to get ALL of the entertainment and attractions that are available.

Tips for Families

Get to the Zoo when it first opens. Try to visit when the weather is moderate. We visited in August and it was very, very hot. You might need two days to cover the entire Zoo or at least a day and a half, especially with small children. Definitely take the tram ride first, it gives you an overview of the entire Zoo so if you only have a limited amount of time, you can quickly visit which exhibits you want to see after the tram ride.

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly accommodations

We stayed at the Sheraton Mission Valley San Diego Hotel which was great and nearby to the Zoo. Family friendly for sure.

You belong in the Zoo!

Tips for Families

A stroller is a must as there are lots of hills and it's a very large zoo. Bring your own hat, sunscreen and comfortable shoes.

When you need a real break, Albert's sit-down, treehouse restaurant is a peaceful respite.

The zoo serves beer (you might need it with the crowds!). AAA members get a discount.

Tips for Families

If you have really little ones, I highly suggest you take a stroller just in case their little legs can't handle walking all day. Even with rest breaks, my active 5-year old needed to rest. Instead of just sitting at a restaurant, I pushed her so she could still rest and continue to see the zoo at the same time.
