This was a very enjoyable zoo! The giraffes kick off the experience right away; the close interaction is a fun way to start any zoo! The bears were our highlight. Seeing them swim, eat, interact with one another, and just chill was very cool experience!...More

I would think parking would be very difficult over a holiday weekend. They do have a lower lot and a shuttle bus to take you up, but the place would also be VERY crowded. Going on a weekday is probably a better bet... More
