“Lovely Botanical Garden & Fabulous Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Botanical garden was beautiful. Nicest orchid and bonsai rooms I've seen. My grown-up kids said the zoo was fabulous and they're aficionados of fine zoos.

“Wonderful Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

For families with children this is a must! This was our first time at the zoon and we loved it. There were a bunch of exhibits and almost all the animals were out and about. The day we went was crazy busy so I would recommend getting there early before the crowds kick in.

“Best place to take a grandchild!”

My grandson goes almost every weekend and is excited each time. It doesn't get better than that! Well kept animals, clean environment. Family passes make this doable.

“One of the best zoos, period`”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

The Cincinnati Zoo has an impressive array of animals from all regions of the world in a terrific setting that best plays to their natural habitat. Don't be surprised if you can't get to it all in done day -- it is quite big!
