Another item on our to do list in Atlanta was the zoo. We’ve never been to Zoo Atlanta, well Rob has, but it’s been years ago. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Here’s some highlights from our afternoon there.
The zoo covers 40+ acres of which most of it is has nice shaded areas with lots of trees. I enjoyed the fact that many of the exhibits could be viewed from several different angles. That’s always important when you’re trying to find where some of the animals may be hiding.
The panda exhibit is like nothing I’ve seen before. There are 7 pandas that live their; 3 of which were on exhibit for us to see the day we were there. They were so entertaining. Here you see my boys standing in front of the exhibit where these 2 pandas played and put on quite a show for all those watching.
Willie B was the face of zoo Atlanta for nearly 40 years. Here’s the tribute they have for him near the gorilla exhibit.
The boys had fun climbing the rock wall and the canopy climber. As a family we also enjoyed the train and the carrousel.
Zoo Atlanta is a little on the high side as far as admission prices go. However, our tickets were included on the City Pass. Regardless, its a great zoo!
