Families, couples, and individuals will all feel welcome. If you go during the week, you will feel less crowded. I have visited more than 10 times and have never been disappointed! In fact, I still can't get over the fact that it is free!!!

The primate exhibit is our favorite exhibit. All the primates are active, healthy looking, and full of funny little tricks. You can spend an entire day here if you choose. The gift shop has lots of reasonably priced merchandise as well so that you can take home a souvenir of your day.

The lakeside café has the nicest setting of any zoo café I've been to--though the prices and selection is par for the course. Picnic lunches are allowed and this makes the zoo a welcome stop in summer, as it is air-conditioned in the inside section. The rest of the year I recommend sitting the perimeter section, on the outside. Very lovely. Wild birds, including peacocks, often come here looking for bread crumbs.
Rivers Edge is the newest part of the zoo, housing the elephants, rhinos, and hippos. Because it is laid out to give you a feel of really being in the wild, expect to do a LOT of walking here. It is very well done and interesting, but will take up a large part of your vist by itself. If you have to skip something, this would be it. Also, the Living World is geared more to school groups and while interesting, can easily be by-passed. Penguin and Puffin Coast is due to open on Memorial Day and looks to be well worth a visit. These parts of the zoo require admission: Children's Zoo--$4.00 each, but free from 9am-10am, Insectarium--$2.00 each, Train--$4.00, and Sea Lion Show--$3.00 each. A Safari Pass can bought at the entrance for $10.00 each and will give you unlimited visits to each of the paid attractions for that day.
