This is a small zoo, but it is very nice. The animals you see here are typical of the ones you see in other zoos, but some exhibits are closed in winter due to the cold. The prettiest time to go is close to Christmas time during the "Electric Safari". You can see the entire skyline of Colorado Springs as well as the thousands upon thousands of lights distributed through the zoo. Admission is $6 US for the Electric Safari, $12 US all other times.

Address: 4250 Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Rd. Colo. Spgs., CO
Directions: Take US 24 East to 21st street, turn right. Follow the small green signs with the giraffe.
