Break out of hibernation mode and hit the road to visit one of the 25 best zoos in the country. Take a walk on the wild side to see creatures great and small and of course, hit the gift shop on the way out.
1. The Alaska Zoo - Anchorage, AK
Arctic animals in their natural habitat? Nuf said.
Big-time nature in the Big Easy. NOLA can be a family-friendly vacay spot after all.
10,000 animals in the heart of NYC equals one magical experience.
80 years of animal adventures in Chicago and one of few places to see pangolins in the US.
160 acres of plants and animals that make the Midwest feel super exotic.
As if San Diego wasn't already great, seeing pandas will seriously top off your visit.
Zoo + aquarium + waterpark + golf club + campground, need we say more?
America's first zoo is still a top spot for family fun.
Award-winning and free every single day, nice.
With 1 million visitors annually, everything really is bigger in Texas.
