What was my favorite part of being a Santa Fe student? FREE ACCESS TO THE TEACHING ZOO!!!! Even if you're not a student, the entrance fee is minimal, and well worth it.
It's a small zoo, but the animals they house and the way they're displayed make up for its size. We're talking ocelots, a black swan, the most enormous alligator I've ever seen in my life, lemurs, hornbills, secretary birds, there's no end! Not to mention the local peacocks and armadillos that freely walk about the campus.
It's a great place to visit in an afternoon!
