When is the last time you’ve been to the World Famous San Diego Zoo? Maybe you are on vacation to San Diego and have never been to the San Diego Zoo. Well, I guess it’s time to put on your sunscreen, lace up your tennis shoes, and grab the camera and Safari gear. It’s time for an adventure!
They don’t call it “World Famous” for nothing. With over 3,700 rare and endangered animals, over 650 species and subspices, San Diego is home to one of the largest, most progressive zoos in the entire world. With nine San Diego Zoo Animal Zones, play areas, petting zoos, tours, bus rides, shows, dining, and shops, you name it- they have it!
Spending a day at the Zoo is a must on your travel to San Diego because it is the perfect place to take the kids for an incredible learning experience, extraordinary adventure, a bonding day-date with your significant other, or even purely a great exercise exploring through the San Diego Zoo’s 100 acres of land.
No matter what you are in San Diego to do or specific experience you are looking for, you can mold your time at the Zoo to fit your expectations. Maybe you want to follow the map precisely and check out everything possible, or simply stroll around and let the kids run and just plan according to what brilliant idea they have next! You can also purchase a behind the scenes pass to get the inside scoop on what really goes into the preservation and daily life of the animals who call the Zoo home.
It is also important to keep in mind that the World Famous San Diego Zoo is a non-profit organization. It contributes to the conservation of endangered species, environmental education, and preservation of wild animals, plants and their habitats.
Not only are you having a blast on your vacation to San Diego, you are also doing your part in funding the very education, supplies, and staff of quite possibly the most fundamental aspect of our planet- the environment and the species which inhabit it.
