I've been too many zoos all over the country and have to say this is one of the better zoos I've been to. They have such great animal exhibits and interactive time with the keepers. My favorite exhibit has to be the tiger exhibit and how beautifully it is laid out. My husband particularly enjoys the prairie dog exhibit. The new elephant exhibit with waterfall is definitely a sight to see. My only spot for improvement would be for them to upgrade their food court. Definitely be prepared to spend most of the day here if you want to see all the exhibits. Great for small children as well.
Pretty great zoo! Some construction happening when we went, prevented us from seeing the wolves, but the amazing bird enclosure made the whole trip worth while. Hot tip: bring quarters to buy feed at the multiple chances to do so and don't wear delicious looking skirts into the goat enclosure.
