Having visited zoos in San Diego CA, Central Park NY, Detroit MI, Cinncinnati OH, Atlanta GA, Basel Switzerland, I'd place the Knoxville Zoo in the top tier. Besides a good variety of animals it is well decorated with flora, clean, and well maintained. The animals appear well cared for and comfortable in their surroundings.

Plan a full day to enjoy all that is offered. The premises is very children friendly.
Wear good walking shoes and be prepared to traverse some hills.

Check the Zoo's website for more details.

Photo opportunities are everywhere...see examples which were made in March 2006, Springtime in Knoxville.

Address: 3500 Knoxville Zoo Drive, Knoxville, TN
Directions: Take Interstate 40 to exit 392. After exiting, follow the signs to Knoxville Zoo.
Phone: (865) 637-5331

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
