San Diego Zoo 

If you are planning to visit San Diego, you’ve just moved in or still didn’t get a chance to go, the San Diego Zoo is going to provide you with an experience that is truly regretful to miss. Alone, with friends, family, for special occasions or just seeking for some fun, this could be the perfect fit.

         Located in Balboa Park in San Diego, the Zoo is open from 9am-5pm every day. The tickets range from $90-$150 for adults and $72-$129 for children. The facility houses over 12,000 animals of more than 650 species and subspecies on 100 acres. It has the largest zoological membership associations in the world, with more than 250,000 member households and 130,000 child memberships, representing more than half a million people. It was a pioneer in the concept of open-air, cageless exhibits that recreate natural animal habitats, which is crucial to understand the conditions in which the animals live and the care and liberty that is provided for them. With more than 4 million visitors in 2018, San Diego Zoo is the most visited zoo in the United States. It is impressive.

         The interesting fact is that there are many possible ways to embark on this adventure. You can travel in the back of a covered, open-air safari truck, into the expansive savanna habitats and you can also see it from the air through a zip line. You can even spend the night at the Safari Park with your family! Campers of all ages are invited to experience a sleepover that has something for everyone, including up-close animal encounters and walking tours to observe the nighttime activities of wildlife. You can even customize your experience and throw a birthday party in the resort. It is a memorable experience to see a cheetah run full speed freely in the wild.

         The visitors describe the Zoo as one of the best they have ever been too. They say that all of the animals are alert and moving around. One happy customer states that she would recommend taking the bus tour to start your day and then go to all the places you may want to spend more time at. Also don’t forget that you will have to do a lot of exercise here, so take a lunch break and don’t hesitate to eat some ice cream, because you will definitely burn it off!
