    Great animals! Best time to go is around 3 or 4- when the animals start to get hungry they get active :)

    They sell beer so you can deal with other people's screaming children but it's a zoo so expect children. Good exhibits. Parking is $15 but zoo admission is free.

    This is an amazing zoo, parking is a bit difficult but if you can find free parking, you can have a family fun day completely free, and nothing beats free.

    Great zoo. Safari pass is a good deal if you want to do more than one of: the 4D simulator, the Children Zoo, the Railroad, the Stingray Experience.

    Become a zoo member. It pays for itself with parking passes, discounts, and tickets for stuff like the train and children's zoo.

    As far as zoos go, it doesn’t get much better than this (plus, it’s free!). Peacocks roam freely throughout the grounds, and its penguin exhibit rocks–hands down. Read more
