Before you go to the zoo, make sure you look for one of those travel flyer racks like they have in hotels with all of the information on things to do in the area. We found one for the Sacramento Zoo for 50% off. They do have combo tickets for the Zoo and Fairytale Town which is across the street but it only saves you about 50 cents.

The Zoo is great! It has many wonderful exhibits and animals. There are also conversations with zoo keepers during the day at different times of the day. These are very fun ad informative and keep the kids attention. Keep an eye out for the times and locations. There was even one talk where the zoo keepers took the animal out of the exhibit and let it walk around and let everyone pet it. It was a type of any eater. Very cool.

Don't forget to check in on one of the social sites that has a check in deal. When we were there, we got free tickets to the carousel. The kids loved it.

This is a smaller zoo that you can complete in a few hours. This is perfect for younger children since they get tired so quickly! Warning though, it's a hot place in the summer! Bring lots of water. There are some picnic areas if you want to pack your own food. The zoo is usually clean and staff is usually friendly.

I went to the zoo over the weekend. The zoo is pretty organized with a quite a few different animals. But I think they should have more exotic animals. Overall ambiance was great and it had nice eating places within the zoo.

I love walking through the zoo & watching the animals, although, there are times when can not be seen due to their being inside sleeping.

A small zoo but just chock full of animals. Very easy to get around and see everything. Lots of interesting displays and programs as well. I would definitely revisit.
