Weekend Adventure: San Diego Zoo

Last Friday, we drove to the southern most tip of California to San Diego to check out the zoo. It's pretty famous as far as zoos go and we really wanted to check it out for ourselves. It didn't disappoint.

The thing with this zoo? It's huge. Way bigger than any other zoo I've visited. Just when we thought we had covered the whole place, we checked the map and discovered we missed a whole region of exotic animals. It took us about 4 and a half hours to see everything but the foxes. It was either cotton candy or foxes.

We walked until our feet throbbed. Finding the moving sidewalk escalator thing was a miracle.

We saw some great animals: hippos, rhinos, pandas. The exhibits gave excellent up close views of these guys.

The girls had a blast. Penelope loved riding in the Bjorn and Beatrice was happiest running around, checking out the animals on her own terms.

We had a great family day and can't wait to go back.


  1. We LOVE the zoo. We live here in San Diego and have passes. I am partial to Seaworld, but our girls adore the zoo :) So fun!
