I basically dislike zoos, but Denver Zoo is a really nice place to spend the day.  Esp Wolf Pack woods, Tropical Discovery and don't miss the endangered species carousel.

“Always a Pleasure.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

A fun and free date once a month as the city offers a Denver Zoo free day. It is often crowded with families and children, but nice to see the monkeys and other primates, of course.

“Great Zoo, very clean and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

Though I have mixed feelings about zoos, Denver Zoo really impressed me. All of the animals seemed to be happy, and had lots of space and were in natural-like environments. Information is everywhere, and it would be such a good place to bring kids to. There are animals of all sorts, and throughout the zoo some peacocks just roam freely! A truly clean and fun place. It's a beautiful place to go when they have Christmas lights up, as well.

“One of the best in the U.S. and the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

State of the art exhibits. Predator Ridge is a beautiful, open, exhibit that incorporates the ability to view lions, hyenas, African wild dogs up close in a natural setting. Can't wait to see the new elephant exhibit opening the summer of 2012.

“Large collection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

Visited the zoo, which has a large collection.
Although it's not the best time of the year for a visit (many animals will stay inside due to the cold), still a lot of them could be watched. Easy to access.
