I have been to the San Diego and Beijing (sp?) zoos and while ours is not as big, it is very worthwhile seeing. The exhibits are close up and fun even in winter. You can see the polar bears diving down into the water through a glass exhibit. Do the zoo and the Museum and Art Museum and you can have a fun weekend.

One of the things that make Milwaukee such a great place to raise a family. Family pass is a real steal in that you can go as many times in the year as you would like. Miles of walking and animals to view in somewhat natural habitats. The sights, the smells!

Zoo Ala Carte is every August and is a lot of fun. Local restaurants set up booths and people can purchase food from some or all of them! It's fun for kids and adults. The zoo has bands playing throughout the days and each night their is a main show keeping the zoo open later than normal. The zoo is a great place to go anytime, but Zoo Ala Carte is a special treat, we go every year! And Zoo Ala Carte is the same price as regular admission!

This place quite nice for a zoo...it is relatively well kept, always has activties going on, and the animals look healthy and happy. My favorite experiences have always been the girrafe feeding and sting ray exhibit, but they have many other fun exhibits as well. It can get crowded and hot pretty fast, so keep a water bottle with you. I hope this zoo continues to be successful. I have always had good experiences here.

This was a nice zoo with great activities in the summer. We saw the Family Stone perform and it was awesome with 3 original member. It is great for walking and viewing. Not as great as the Colorado Springs Zoo we visited but amazing concert series in the summer.
