  • The little park off to the side of the zoo parking lot was a nice place to have a bite to eat before going in. It would be nice if there were more picnic tables in the area. Maybe there were and I just didn't see them. The area with all the military memorials was nice. Seems like they could upkeep it a bit better. I recommend using this spot for small groups, not larger ones. You should definitely stop by if you love military history.
  • Beautiful Animals. We really enjoyed the trip. Kids had fun. I would like to go back when it gets a little warmer. The actual pathway was really clean. They had some really nice gift shops. I recommend going if it's near your area. I definitely would rather take my kids there then a lot of things other places because it gets them outside with nature something they lack now.
