A premier zoo for animal breeding, Philadelphia Zoo is known for the variety of primate species that live there. The Rare Animal Conservation Center offers an up-close view of rare species and features interactive graphics. In other areas you'll view the antics of otters and red pandas, as well as the grace of big cats. Take time to visit the aviaries, which teem with feathered friends. You'll be able to spot the zoo anywhere in the city--the Zooballoon, a tethered balloon that floats high above the skyline, marks its location.

  • The Philadelphia Zoo is a great zoo! The exhibits allow great views of the majority of animals. When visiting in the morning in late April, almost all of the animals were exploring their enclosures...

  • It's the ZOO. It's a lot of walking, it's hot and you get to see animals that you've seen before. But you do it cause the kids love it. It was good. The dinosaur trail was nice and well loved. Would definitely go again. Bring water. They sold out because it was so hot. Bring lunch too you don't want to wait in a hour long line for food.
  • It was amazing! Very friendly and clean. They have food trucks set up right now but your more then welcome to bring your own food. The tickets are cheap and the parking is reasonable too. You do not have to spend money while there. I like that it's clear to see that the animals are well taken care of. In my opinion it's a great place for a family trip!
