We enjoyed our weekend trip to the zoo. It's a big enough property to get the feel of a zoo but not so vast, that you spend many hours walking. My daughter liked various exhibits, and was excited to meet all the funny monkeys.
At the end if the visit we rode a small train, and got a carousel ride.
I do recommend this outing because of educational and entertaining value.
We're planning to come back in the fall to see the Holiday decorations.
Tickets are only around $10. Senior & kids pricing available.
