Known for their fantastic breeding program, this zoo, set in the midst of beautiful botanical gardens, is a not-to-be missed attraction in Cincinnati.

I go quite often to the zoo since I have purchased a yearly pass with my grandchildren and also by myself. Very clean. Many hills to climb in the zoo which can be hard on individuals with problems but there are wheelchairs for their convience. Go to the Zoo, you will not regret it.

The Cincinnati Zoo is very near downtown Cincinnati. When at the zoo you don't know that you are right in town. It is made to be like you are away from civilization. Excellent display of all the zoo animals. We like going into the building that has the bats and other night animals, very interesting to see them as to them it is daytime.

This is a great zoo to visit! There are a lot of exhibits to see - indoors and outdoors. The zoo has a wide variety of animals and most of them were out and about. There is a 4-D movie attraction which is kind of short, but good. I just wish it had been longer. There is a train that you can ride around the zoo to see some of the botanicals and a few animals. The train isn't really for sight seeing, but more for a rest I believe. But, it was fun. There is also a carousel to ride. They have a really nice bird exhibit that you can enter and feed the birds nectar or seeds. My children really enjoyed doing that. There are plenty of vendors where you can get food or drinks. They have pizza, hot dogs....even Skyline Chili. The prices are about the same as other amusement parks. All of the workers were nice. All in all, we had a really good day. This is my favorite zoo!
