We've gone to a lot of great zoos, but San Diego is definitely big. Prepare to walk a lot, there are bus that drive to different areas. My children loved all the animals and experience. Food is Okay there, typical park food. Loved having the red shirt volunteers around when viewing animals. They tell you the animals name and background story and age. It make the experience so much more personal and it great having all these interesting facts about all the animals they care for there. Definitely happy to have an awesome zoo like that in So Cal and being a member supporting a place like that make me feel like my money is going to a great cause.
