    Get the zoo membership. It's fairly inexpensive, and the zoo is awesome to just walk around on a day off with the kids. Plus, they have animals!

    A great place to relax and have a fun day - there's a lot to see, and you could spend hours just combing over all the exhibits. If I lived in Phoenix, I would definitely buy a membership.

    Be prepared not to see a lot of animals out at this time of year. Even though it is warm in Arixoba, it is still winter so most of the animals were in hiding. I still enjoyed the little I did see.

    The Phoenix Zoo was home until 1998 to Ruby the artistic elephant, whose paintings sell today for a hefty bit of cash. Even without Ruby, the zoo is a great spot for families, friends and dates.

    Not the largest zoo, and mostly desert animals. A must for any resident or tourist. Only takes about 2-3 hours to tour. Don't forget to feed the giraffes!

    If you have little kids, make sure to take them to the petting zoo, giraffe encounter, and stingray bay. If you arent worried about the train, paying individually is cheaper than the "wild" pass.
