This by far is one of the best zoos that I have ever been too. The animals are in their natural habitat and have plenty of room to roam. The polar bears are amazing. Wish they had different varieties of bears though.

Nice relaxing way to spend a Sunday, especially in the fall with the Fall Fest theme and trick or treating.

This was our second time visiting from out of state. It's a great zoo. They offered mothers for free on mothers day.

Current pricing is available on their website and the admission price covers all attractions at the zoo. There are no additional charges once you are inside the gates.

I don't recall exact pricing but do recall it was reasonable--check online as they offer discounts, etc and get there early if possible, it got crowded fast when we visited
