It seems like every time I’ve logged into Facebook this week, several of my friends are at the zoo! This beautiful weather has made visiting the zoo a perfect treat for all ages. Lulu loves the zoo. Despite not having quite mastered the English language, she has mastered almost every animal sound you can imagine (exactly what does a bunny sound like?). Her love of learning about animals has made going to the zoo one of her favorite activities.
If the weather isn’t a tempting enough reason to visit the zoo today, taking advantage of winter admission prices should be the icing on the cake. Until April 12th, tickets are less than $10. On April 13th, adult admission is $16.50, youth admission will be $11.50. Parking at the zoo is $6. If you are able to visit during the week, then Community Tuesdays are another perfect opportunity to visit. On the first Tuesday of the month, the zoo offers $8 admission thanks to the Community Health Network. There is a military discount as well as a AAA discount.
Our favorite exhibits are the dolphin show and Oceans, where you get to touch a real shark! We also enjoy watching the Baboons and other animals in the Plains. There are plenty of places to eat at the zoo but our choice has always been to bring our own lunch (leave it in the car) and sit in the nice picnic area outside of the zoo. Re-entry is easy so taking your lunch anywhere in White River State Park would be nice and beautiful!
