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

Flag review

The San Diego Zoo is a family destination for a reason--there is entertainment and attractions for everyone. From the interactive petting zoo to the 4-D Ice Age movie--the entire family will be blown away by the bus ride throughout the entire Zoo and getting up close and personal with the massive animal habitats. There are also Cirque-du-Solei type performances throughout the park which are a must-see.

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.
