Save Place
Columbus, Buffalo, NY, USA
The Buffalo Zoo in February brings some unexpected delights without the crowds. This Bengal tiger spent about 15 minutes posing for the camera, giving my grandaughter and I a private show, with only the glass separating us!
Save Place
2001 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60614, USA
It's enormous, it's full of animals, it's open all year round, and, best of all, it's (gasp!) free. The Lincoln Park Zoo is one of the single greatest things to do in Chicago. Visit the monkeys in their house of hilarity, or swing past the penguin...
Save Place
4925, 9777 Golf Links Rd, Oakland, CA 94605, USA
The annual Oakland Zoo "Walk in the Wild" fundraiser provides a chance to stroll through the zoo, which has made tremendous strides in improving its habitats and animal care, while partaking in a wide variety of foods, wines, and beers from local...
Save Place
6500 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA 70118, USA
A nice diversion in the Big Easy is the Audubon Zoo. Take the streetcar through neighborhoods lined with moss-covered trees to this lovely park, and visit with some amazing animals!
Save Place
Plantage Kerklaan 38-40, 1018 CZ Amsterdam, Netherlands
Amsterdam is a city with so much to offer that it can be overwhelming when planning your visit. With the museums, restaurants, canals, and nightlife to explore it can be even harder to plan your trip on a budget. If you are going for at least a...
Save Place
4401 Zoo Pkwy, Asheboro, NC 27205, USA
As a zoo aficionado, I thoroughly enjoyed the enormous zoological park in Asheboro, NC. It covers 500 acres of natural woodlands, with large meadows for grazing animals like zebras, elk, buffalo, and elephants. Half the zoo is devoted to Africa,...
Save Place
London, UK
I'm a zoo lover at heart. I will always be a zoo lover, especially if every one I visit from now on offers a happy hour for adults and kids just like the ZSL London Zoo. That's right, friends. Join the party animals every Friday night during the...
Save Place
3001 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008, USA
The 163-acre National Zoo is cradled by D.C.’s wooded Rock Creek Park, providing a protected, dynamic habitat for more than 1,500 animals. From the micro-world of insects to the larger-than-life world of elephants, the exhibits are engaging...
Save Place
2920 Zoo Dr, San Diego, CA 92101, USA
If you're short on time, don't think you are going to be able to see everything. I've been here many times, for hours each time, and it wasn't until the seventh visit that I finally saw all of the exhibits. I recommend picking some points of...
Save Place
Domaine de Cambron, B-7940 Brugelette, Belgium
A former Cistercian Abbey doesn't seem a likely place to find elephants, giraffes and cheetahs, but that's exactly where you'll find Pairi Daiza Zoo and Botanical Garden. This 55-hectare (140-acre) park is one of Wallonia‘s top attractions and...
Save Place
Zoo, Xicheng, China, 100037
Traveling to Beijing over the Christmas holiday wasn't exactly my wisest decision. Despite ultra-warm layers, thickly-lined boots, and a massive scarf large enough to protect most of my face, the biting cold stymied my ability to hit all the spots...
Save Place
80 Mandai Lake Rd, Singapore 729826
Singapore Zoo has been recognized as a leader in creating naturalistic habitats since its opening in 1973, using concealed moats to separate animals from visitors and incorporating a local reservoir into the landscaping. There are dozens of themed...
Save Place
Bradleys Head Rd, Mosman NSW 2088, Australia
Travelers should visit Taronga Zoo as much for its harbor views as for the 4,000 resident animals (who see them all day long). Ferry 15 minutes from Circular Quay and take an optional Sky Safari cable car, included in the ticket...
Save Place
4850 W Powell Rd, Powell, OH 43065, USA
Voted the #1 zoo in the country, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium's latest addition is a 1.3-acre yard specially designed to be the ultimate polar bear habitat called Polar Frontier. The exhibit is home to two polar bears, two Alaskan brown bears and...
