"Philadelphia Zoo" Zoo Tip by alex0312

Zoo, Philadelphia: 5 reviews and 13 photos

A really nice place to visit. If I'm not mistaken, this zoo was the first one in the United States. Many different animals to see and it just remodeled the Tiger/Lion exibit so it should be even better. Pick a nice and cool day to visit. A nice place to take kids to. There is a petting zoo and many different things specifically for kids. There is also a hot air balloon that you can go up on and see the city. The price is a little expensive (went up in the past couple of years) but it is worth it.
