Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden SPRING IS HERE!

I have spent more time at the Cincinnati Zoo then any other attraction in the area. Since I was little I remember packing up and heading out with my Dad’s camera in tow, ready to watch the animals (and of course take a lot of great pictures).




The gorilla’s have ALWAYS been a family favorite – not only are they fascinating to watch, but entertaining as well! Something new and exciting is always happening there and this year is no different. The Cincinnati Zoo welcomed baby gorilla Gladys Stones!



My daughter’s favorite animal has always been the elephant! The elephant exhibit has both indoor and outdoor viewing areas, and when it’s HOT the Zookeepers hose them down, which makes for some funny elephant watching!

The Renovated Reptile House is now open for your viewing pleasure! Many days Zoo staff have snakes, lizards and more out of their cages and available for you to touch or hold. Remember if you have any questions, the Zoo Staff is very knowledgeable and can answer any question you may have about the reptiles.


Whenever my family heads to the Zoo, we never miss the opportunity to ride the Zoo Safari Train! The train which takes you around the park gives you a different view of the animals  and the other attractions, it even takes you around the lake!

You can get your Family Zoo Membership now, which for as little as $94 gives you fun for an entire year! The basic membership gives you and your family members free admission to the Zoo all year long! You can upgrade to a Gold membership for only $189. This is a great value as it includes FREE parking, 1 free guest per visit, Unlimited Rides on the Zoo Train and Carousel and this year they added 4 FREE 4-D Theater tickets!

The Zoo isn’t only great to enjoy in the Spring & Summer, but some of the best adventures we’ve had is at the famous Festival of Lights!
