When was the last time you visited a zoo or aquarium?

Seeing zoos and aquariums across the country can be tons of fun. And you don’t even have to have or bring kids along to enjoy them!

Some of the best zoos in the U.S. are the San Diego Zoo, the Bronx Zoo, the Denver Zoo, the Cincinnati Zoo… OK, basically every city has a fun zoo that’s probably worth a stop. Plus, seeing cute animals will make driving through an urban area worth it… Right?

When was the last time you visited a zoo or an aquarium? Vote in the poll, then leave a comment with the details. Thanks!

Every year (for the last 7 or so), were in the Phoenix/Mesa area for my Birthday and I always choose the Wildlife Museum in Litchfield. Great animal and Aquarium. The restaurant is great also.

A few months ago we were in the Outer Banks and we visited an aquarium on Roanoke Island. It was pretty small but they do some rescues, treatment, and rehab of turtles and such that was really interesting.

Our most recent zoo visit was the Columbus OH zoo 3 years ago. This was for my wife, (bride of now 33 years) she loves and I mean absolutely loves koala bears and they have some. Prior to that was the Cleveland OH Zoo, same reason koalas and we’ve been there a few times. We love the aquariums as well and also like to visit butterfly conservatories if there happens to be one in an area we go to.

Aquarium of the Pacific, Long Beach. 2004. A lifetime ago! And I really don’t like to go to zoos, seeing a bunch of penned up animals. Don’t even like to drive by a feed lot for cattle.

Visited the Desert Museum in Tucson this year. It has some some animals but is primarily known for the desert fauna. A wonderful little museum/zoo. The Tucson Zoo is a small zoo that we also visited. It had some very cool exhibits.

I chose “5-10 years,” but I do not recall specifically. I remember the last time that we went to each but cannot place either visit in time. Parking and crowds tend to affect my willingness to see things that are not a high priority for me and neither of these is. Yogi Berra described me when he reputedly said, “No one goes there anymore, it’s too crowded.”

Went to the Brandywine Zoo (Wilmington, DE) early in the summer. Very small. First time to a zoo in 30 or 40 years.
