My grandchildren and I visited the Dakota Zoo. They have outstanding animal viewing. At the lion exhibit you can go underground and come up in the lion den area. There is a train that takes you around the whole zoo. Well worth the visit!

I love the zoo, period. The animals and exhibits are wonderful. There are accommodations for the handicap, and their prices for the food and entrance is great. The parking lot is large enough to pull right next to the entrance. Very nice.....

Enjoy going with or without kids, it just so nice to lose yourself and enjoy the animals. It is great exercise to stroll or faster yet if there is anone needing to use a wheelchair they can enjoy the trip as well. Grab some food and plan a picnic while you are at It!

We had a great day walking through the zoo and seeing the animals. The zoo is small enough to see it all within a couple hours. The train ride is a great way to see everything. The wasps were pretty bad while we were there.
