I absolutely adore zoos. They're quintessential to childhood and are still a necessity for me as an adult. This is a cute little zoo, well spaced out, and has fun little events through the year. I've been at least 4 times in the last couple of months because what's better than walking around outside on a beautiful sunny day and looking at fun creatures you don't see just out and about? This last time I went I was finally able to see the tigers and I was SO EXCITED. Gosh they are just so pretty. And the bears were doing bear things and the elephants were snacking. It was absolutely great. If you're looking for a bigger zoo, this isn't for you. This is a small, cute, and quick in-and-out zoo that can take you maybe 45 minutes tops if you speed walk it. I like to take my time though and spend about 2 hours there wanting to pet every single fluffy butt. I haven't tried any of the food there, but the gift shop staff are always pleasant!
