- Detroit Zoo – Sitting on 125 acres not far from downtown Detroit, this zoo is “Michigan’s largest paid family attraction, with more than a million visitors annually” (source). Popular exhibits include the Arctic Ring of Life and the Great Apes of Harambee.
- San Diego Zoo – With over 250,000 memberships, this is one of the country’s most popular zoos (source). Don’t worry, though. Not everybody goes on the same day. Nonetheless, the extensive member rolls should tell you a little something about this zoo’s popularity and ability to impress.
- Bronx Zoo – One of largest metropolitan zoos in terms of size, the Bronx Zoo is also one of the oldest. Opened in 1899, the zoo is home to more than 4,000 animals from 650 different species. Talk about wildlife!
- Cincinnati Zoo – Today, over 500 animal species call this zoo home, making it one of the largest in the country. However, when it opened in 1875, the zoo’s collection boasted far fewer animals. Included among them? An actual talking crow (source).
- Toledo Zoo – This zoo was founded in 1900 after a thoughtful citizen donated a woodchuck to the city. We can think of no better reason for starting a zoo.
