The zoo is a great place to spend the day. The animals are fun to look at, and there is a lot to learn. The food is also really great.

This was the first zoo I went to as a kid and it's been a couple decades since my last visit so it's nice to see everything has changed. The exhibits are good sized for the type of animals in them. There's plenty of shaded, rest areas and water stops for the humans. I especially enjoy how you walk in a circle to get to the exit instead of having to back track like at some zoo's. They are definitely at the top of my list with zoo's we've been to.
