For something to do with kids or not, visit the zoo. I liked the meerkats and the fish, the giraffe too the wild cats were hidden away. Not much in the way of good food there, so take your own

Great variety of animals, most of which in decent sized enclosures. However, some enclosures were too small, especially the big birds of prey (eagles, condors etc). Also, didn’t like that a lot of animals had they’re inside areas locked throughout the day.
