"National Zoo" National Zoo Tip by sswagner

National Zoo, Washington D.C.: 68 reviews and 128 photos

by sswagner

Set in Woodley Park and a short walk from the Metro is one of the country's finest zoos. Admission is free of charge. You will find some animals which are hard to find at many zoos. The most famous residents right now seem to be the Giant Pandas from China. They are certainly amazing, but only a part of what the zoo has to offer. Spread throughout the zoo are animals from all over the world. A trip here can take a good part of the day, but it is great for children and those who are fascinated by animals.
