Get an underwater view of hippos at the Hippoquarium, the only such zoo exhibit in the world, and then move on to see the 500 or so other species of mammals, reptiles and birds.

Very clean and lots of animals to see - and the aquarium even better. $17 adult entry covers both. We were a little surprised by the expensive food and drinks as well as the $8.00 parking fees but we figured that’s just to be expected...More

The best time to visit the zoo is in the evening in Fall, when they have all the lantern animals on display! All those beautiful colors, shining bright! It's also great to see how some of the real animals get more active at dusk.

In my opinion, this zoo is over-rated. It boasts of so many animals. We sure didn't see them. It's a lot of walking, and very little viewing. I should have kept count of the number of animals we actually saw. I truly don't believe the...More
