I just spent the day yesterday at the zoo and loved their new elephant exhibit. I even had lunch at the Asian cafe and it was great. They serve Asian inspired meals. Not what I was expecting, I was pleasantly surprised. Overall it was a great day, it's a great zoo with a wide variety of animals and shows. I even saw the elephant and sea lion show in the afternoon.

Even though the San Diego Zoo covers a very large area, I think that the Denver Zoo delivers a big bang for the buck without leaving you with the feeling that your legs are about to buckle under you and you have seen just as many things.

We went here for my birthday after not having visited for at least a decade. What a transformation the zoo has undergone in that time. There were four adults in our party and it made us just as happy as the little kids to see all of the animals!

Always fun to see new stuff at the Denver Zoo. Recommend you get the annual pass, saves money, go back many times during the year.
