I was a little apprehensive at first about a Zoo 15-20 minutes away from Allentown City area. However the ride in was beautiful, with pretty farms and barns, then a windy road up a large hilltop. Coming into the small Zoo again made think we were in for a short and disappointing visit. HOWEVER, once in we were greeted by a wonderful Penguin exhibit. Then it was off down the uncrowded paths to visit many other wonderful animals, up close!!! You could almost touch the animals, and there was a diverse collection of them. Down the path we went was a small play area for the small kids, which mine enjoyed. Then back to the trail. Ostriches, Zebras, Otters, Camels, a rare wolf den, Eagles, Hawks and other large and small animals made this a wonderful experience. The food was good also. After leaving, we rode thru the ford in the river, an experience they had a sign up claiming "most kids remember this for the rest of their life" and they were right. It was fun and quite scary to my wife in our little Honda Accord. Then it was off on the Safari Ride thru acres of Elk, then many acres of roaming Bison. Great fun! The access to roads in and out of Zoo was quick and easy. If you want to enjoy 2-3 hours on a nice day, take this trip. It's open year round!!!
