Owner description: Don't miss this exciting metropolitan zoo best known for having the largest collection of primates in the United States and for its Rainforest exhibit, which features a thrilling simulated tropical rain storm.

The Cleveland zoo is really a very good zoo. It's harder in the winter because some of the animals are indoors and a lot of the food stands are closed. But in the summer, there's a good variety of foods to eat and animals to see. The only issue is that some parts of the zoo don't connect to the others, so you can't go up one path and straight over to another area... you have to go back down to the center starting location. However, they offer a tram for you to hop on to make your travel to and from those areas a lot easier. And the zoo is really very inexpensive, so it's totally worth spending a day there!

We love visiting the Rainforest especially in the winter. Its warm and the kids love seeing all the animals. We try and go several times through out the year.

The zoo has a wonderful collection of animals, lovely surrounding scenery, clear and concise maps and is very clean. You can walk everywhere or take the buses. Unfortunately we ran out time and couldn't visit the rainforest area everyone raves about.

Cleveland Zoo is the best I have ever been to & it keeps getting better. A lot to see, so you better use the map to come up with a game plan or you will miss something. Love the African Savannah & the Rain Forest.
