    Entire zoo is wheelchair and stroller accessible. That being said, whichever way you choose to make your loop, your first half will be uphill, and some parts are steep.

    Great for outdoor adventures, bar-b-ques, and close to the heart of the city. $40/person/day or $100/family/year. You tell me what's the better deal. Second season as a member holder and loving it.

    I highly recommend the elephants, bush dogs, gorillas, and of course, the pandas. If you ever think you may want to have children - come here for a birth control realization.

    Awesome zoo, specially by the pandas and Gorillas! Avoid the long eating lines in the park by going to a nearby place around the park, you can stamp your ha dado to return at the entrance.

    One of the 6 must-see Atlanta attractions included in the Atlanta CityPASS. CityPASS is a great way to visit Atlanta & save on admission prices. For purchase at the link. p.s. Say hi to the giraffes! Read more

    Days with light rain are the BEST. We don our rain boots and go looking for the biggest puddles. The animals are more active and it feels like a private viewing with no one else around.

    If you want to buy panda gifts, do so at the gift shop right by the panda exhibit as the main gift shop at the entrance is strangely devoid of all very many panda items.

    Check with the front desk when you get there to make sure you know about all of the feedings and animal encounters going on that day! Want more tips? Check out Kid Friendly Summer Fun - Atlanta! Read more

    Zoo Atlanta is not just the pride of our city, it is one of the most respected zoos in the nation/world. The conservation, husbandry and preservation efforts here are wonderful!

    make sure to get there by 10 a.m, at the latest. it gives you enough time to see the exhibits before all of the feedings. the orangutan feeding was extraordinary!

    Often-overlooked animals: the giant tortoises near the exit; the hornbills, who often flaunt food in their beaks at passersby (usually dead mice); the Koopaesque snapping turtle in the reptile house.

    Get to the zoo early for the best FREE parking. If you can't park in the lots, try street parking a few blocks east or west of the zoo.

    Love food, beer and music almost as much as you love the adorable animals at Zoo Atlanta? Then don't miss Brew at the Zoo, a great beer festival held in May!

    The zoo opened in 1889 whenbusinessman George V. Gress purchased a bankrupt traveling circus & donated the animals to Atlanta. In 1999 the zoo joined only 2 other zoos in housing giant pandas.

    The season pass is worth every penny! It costs less than two trips, and allows you to make short visits without feeling guilty about not seeing everything every time.

    The new reptile house is gorgeous- never thought I would use that word for a reptile house. 100% better than the old one. Bright and spacious. Worth the trip!

    I love the layout of this compact zoo. It's also very sure to check for reciprocating memberships if you belong to another zoo.

    Lun Lun, the giant panda, had twins! If you are planning to see her, you have to wait until later in the Fall because she is nursing them!

    The panda encounter is pricey but you won't find another opportunity close to it outside of China! Kicking myself that we didn't do it- guide had even offered a discount for our 1.5 year old.

    WEATHER ADVICE! If it is to cold or to hot certain animals won't be out or in view. If it is below 48 degrees or feels below that chances r alot of animals won't be out. Think before you go!

    said goodbye to Mei Lan and it made me sad. I also bought an annual membership. If you buy the partner one you and any guest can go to the zoo all year for the price of one day admission!

    Went during the summer and the weather made the animals lazy and unappealing. Maybe going during the fall or spring is a better idea.

    When the city's outdated zoo was named one of the country's 10 worst in the 80s, Willie B. came to the rescue and stole our hearts. In 2000, more than 8,000 mourners joined for a tearful memorial.

    A zoo is a zoo is a zoo. Nothing special except for the pandas. Don't go when it's hot; the animals want to rest in the shade just as much as you do
