This second oldest zoo in the U.S., considered one of the best in the country, is most renowned for its endangered species and birthing programs, particularly for gorillas and white tigers, and has a wonderful collection of felines and a delightful...more

I decided to visit the zoo even though it was cold with some snow. The tickets were cheaper because of the season, and it was very quiet. Many of the animals were in inside areas because of the weather, but we could see the elephants,...More
The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens are one of the finest attractions of this type in the USA! Found in a part of a city where you would least expect to find a zoo ,makes the visit that much more exciting.

We love the Cincinnati zoo, and see clearly why it’s one of the top zoos in the country. We love that we can bring in our own food/drink as well. Early morning and late afternoon are best to beat the crowds; weekdays are also a...More
A cool winter day may not have been the best time to see the exotic animals.
We did have a pleasant encounter with Fiona's mom, tigers, and giraffes. But many creatures were locked up and not visible.
Some small and larger cat enclosures, seemed inadequate...More
We unfortunately only had 1 morning in town to see the zoo. It was raining a little when we arrived and paid $16 per person plus $10 parking. Very few animals were out. We did get to see Fiona and her mom in a covered...More
One of the best Christmas light exhibits. While most of the animals were not out, there were enough to make it worth while and the lights are really stunning, Crowds were pretty big (be prepared for long lines for food).
The only negative was the...More
We visited as a family of 6 from Indianapolis. We were very pleasantly pleased with the entire experience. From the price to the layout. The Christmas lights were beautiful and gave the zoo a magical glow. We were so pleased that we bought a year...More
Does the MTA allow you to break your journey? (1 Replies)
If I buy a weekly ticket from White Plains station to Grand Central Terminal, would I be able to use that ticket to travel to/from any intermediate station? Planning on going to the Bronx Zoo and Botanical Garden and it'd save buying an extra ticket since there's a train station right next to the Botanical Garden.

What is the closest hotel to the zoo?

Kingsgate Marriott Conference Center at the UniversityofCincinnati is within easy walking distance and there are others not too far away as well. If you are here only to see the zoo it would be a good choice but if you are interested in other attractions you might look elsewhere as it is adjacent to the UC and VA medical complex and (due to street/road configuration) an "island entire of itself." Any good travel search engine like Kayak or this one will provide maps to show you where your...More

We will be coming from Canada the beginning of May. What is the best time of day to visit these 2 places with a 1 year old so as not to be overcome by the heat?

I would go earlier in the morning to beat the heat yet also work it around your child's nap time. No sense going when they would be tired. While the park opens at 8am, the butterfly exhibit opens at 9am. The butterfly exhibit has been rebuilt in the wildflower area and your child will be enthralled at all the butterflies flying around the exhibit. They exhibit is open until May 14.
