Zoo Knoxville reviews
A very nice Zoo on the move! This zoo had a very humble beginning and has come such a very long way and so many plans are in the works for expansions. It is not quite up to the point of Nashville or..... more »
If you live in the greater Knoxville area and you haven't been to Zoo Knoxville lately...do yourself a huge favor and get there. The work they're doing is really, truly amazing for our world. It's a great way to spend a few hours or a whole day, no matter how old you are. The new exhibits are fantastic, the new food is great, and the guest experience is lovely. Go to the Zoo!!
One of my top favorite places in Knoxville to bring the kids. Big enough where you can spend an hour or two and do certain phases of the zoo and then come back for other areas if you have a season pass. Great to unplug from electronics and see vivid artistry!
