This zoo is the best. You can spend a couple hours to take it all in or a whole day savoring the sight of all the animals. Just the right size. No need to complete a marathon to see all the animals like at larger...More
The Akron Zoo is such a nice zoo for little ones. It is significantly smaller than the Cleveland Zoo, in a good way. You can cover the whole place without becoming exhausted. They have little areas for the kids to play along the way. Our...More

Stopped here with wife and two boys (2 and 4). Visited in November so it was quiet there. We probably miss out on a lot of the special events and displays by going off season, but it is easier for us to let our two...More
I will be staying in Cleveland for 4 days and will visit the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Given that I am a huge zoo fan I want to check out as many as possible. If you had time for either the Akron Zoo or Toledo Zoo, which one would you visit and why? I will be alone or with another adult. Pricing and parking fees don't matter. Dining doesn't matter because I'll bring lunch. Thank you!

We, too are Zoo Buffs, and have visited the Big (and small) Zoos in the US, Britain, Europe, and Beijing. We have found the Toledo Zoo to be an excellent small attraction, and there are several other attraction in Toledo.
