  • The family loved it! We were suprised at how good their eatery was. The prices were decent and the food tasted better than most of its type. We were also surprised at how big it was considering how unassuming it appeared from the outside. The exhibits did appear to be well maintained and the animals cared for. It was such a great time!
  • I had a great time taking my daughter to the zoo for the first time. I think that the zoo will be back to a 5 star zoo once the construction on the elephant enclosure is done, but when we were there, there was a lot of construction sounds, and entire paths were blocked off. With that being said, I cannot wait to go back to the zoo in a few weeks when the weather is warmer and the construction is done. I am sure it will be a 5 star experience!
