Trip Planner: USA / Pennsylvania / Philadelphia / Philadelphia Zoo
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Philadelphia Zoo and many more Philadelphia attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Philadelphia trip site.

We enjoyed our visit to the zoo immensely! It was a gorgeous day to enjoy the animals, the sunshine, and the beautifully landscaped pathways. We were disappointed that we couldn't see some of our favorites like the penguins and flamingos (due to avian flu precautions). We especially enjoyed the family of gorillas. :) If you plan to visit more than once in a year, I highly recommend investing in a membership!
We came here during the Memorial Day weekend 2021. This was our first time here. It was raining on the way here and for a short period time after arriving but it eventually stopped and we were able to enjoy the Zoo. Parking was pretty easy and was just a short walk to the main gate. Once through the main gate there is an inside exhibit, we hung out in there for while because they had a few new baby animals and it was neat to see how they act with their mothers. A few exhibits was closed at this time but nothing that would stop you from having a good time! They have so many animals to see and enjoy! One of my favorites were the 3 giraffes, which was amazing to see because most Zoos I been to either have 1,2 or none at all. Be prepared because it is a lot of walking so bring your best walking/running shoes. Can’t forget the beer! Beer was good and cold! However, this Zoo is kind of pricey because you have to pay for parking and admission, which is unheard of. All of the Zoos I have been to you either paid for admission and parking was free or you paid for parking and admission was free. I still recommend visiting the Philadelphia Zoo. You will have a great time!
