Tips for Families

If you don't want to do the additional fee attractions, stay to the left. That's where most of the animal exhibits are. The zoo has a small petting zoo, but it's really just goats. Not the best petting zoo, but the kids like it.

This zoo just doesn't do it for me. And that sucks because this is my hometown! My mom always said this zoo sucked, but I couldn't remember anything about it since I had went as a child.

Apparently, we came at the wrong time because every single animal was having sex in front of us. It was so bad that parents had to cover kids eyes. I thought this was HILARIOUS!! To the monkeys to the lions, everybody was "relieving stress". Anyway, The zoo looks next to dead now and it's very small compared to other major cities' zoos. I wish Atlanta will brighten up their major sight seeing places and make them more exci...

We are moving to Atlanta from Raleigh, and I have an annual membership to the North Carolina Zoo. Thank goodness for my NC Zoo membership-- I would have had to pay $22 to get into the Zoo Atlanta!!! I'm not sure why this zoo is so expensive... Anyway, coming from a HUGE zoo in NC, this zoo felt tiny! However, I like that I was able to see eve...
