Today we took our family to the NC zoo. The only other zoo I have to compare it with is the Woodland Park zoo in Seattle, which we have visited many times. I like that zoo in Seattle a lot. Lots of good memories there. But if I had to pick the best one, I'd say it's NC Zoo hands down!
What a beautiful zoo! And what a fabulous location! The tram was super convenient (except the part where they make you remove your sleeping child from the stroller, empty the stroller of ALL its contents, and fold it flat before you board). And the exhibits were very engaging.
We didn't get to see everything of course. You never can do a whole zoo in one day. We look forward to going back again! Next time we hope to take all the kids. Our oldest stayed home with a chest cold today. Sad. :(
