This zoo, named one of the best in the country by USA Today, is home to a sizable elephant exhibit. The overall arrangement of the zoo is perfect for a leisurely stroll.

Took my grandchildren to the Asian Lantern Festival and they loved it! The photos are just a small fraction of the attractions and exhibits that they displayed! It was so much to see and really beautiful, but be prepared to put on your comfortable walking shoes! You can either walk through or drive-through...$66 for 4 pack tickets, is not bad. $22 if purchased separately! Really a unique experience!
Amazing zoo! Very well-kept. Saw so many animals up close and many unique animals we had never seen at other zoos. We were here during the lantern festival during the daytime and even though the lanterns weren't lit up they were beautiful and added so much to the experience. Lots of great food options too. We were visiting from out of state and were very impressed with this zoo.
