    Avoid the food. Go across the parking lot and eat at the Children's Museum. No need to have a ticket.

    Food choices are shameful. Lots of construction. Still a nice zoo.

    Great zoo. Be on the lookout for roaming peacocks. Ride the zoo train to the rose gardens.

    Be careful, this place can be a zoo if you go at the wrong time. If you go at the right time it can be a zoo too.

    There's a geocache in the Great Northwest area, but cell signal is poor in that area of the zoo, so look it up ahead of time. You'll need the description to open the lock.
