Smithsonian's National Zoo
The 163-acre National Zoo is cradled by D.C.’s wooded Rock Creek Park, providing a protected, dynamic habitat for over 1,500 animals. From the micro world of insects to the larger than life world of elephants, the exhibits are engaging and educational, especially if timed with a training or feeding demonstration. Highlights include orangutans swinging overhead as they traverse the “O-Line” cable between enclosures, a charismatic family of otters who swirl through a waterfall-fed stream and scurry over rocks, and of course, the world famous giant pandas who are just generally adorable as they eat, sleep, climb and play. Entrance is free but donations are recommended to support the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to research and conserve these species for generations to come.
