While in Cleveland to visit family, we decided to try the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. It was a beautiful day for a walk around the zoo and there were parts of the zoo that were wonderfully done. I really enjoyed the Elephant Crossing, the building was a wonderful surprise. Inside the building were people who educated us about elephants and we could also see the elephants that were not outside yet. I also enjoyed the Lion habitat and the meerkats. I really loved that they had such a large primate population but I was very disappointed in the aquatic section. There was a lot of walking involved (there were trams available but we didn't take them) so wear your most comfortable shoes. It was nice that each section of the zoo had their own gift shops as well as the main gift shop. The food was fairly standard zoo fare, the barbeque was good (although not cheap). Overall, the zoo was very entertaining and something for all in Cleveland to be proud of.
