Two thumbs up! The Toledo Zoo scores again. My book club did a field trip on a Tuesday and it was a beautiful night! We had a great time. The lights were just enchanting. The Toledo Zoo is the best - day and night!!!

Wonderful zoo. Toledo has the finest zoo around for miles and miles, not to mention the concert series over the summer month. Amazing!
