Best Fun for the Whole Family

Reid Park Zoo

Fun fact: Giraffes are the tallest land animals thanks to those lengthy necks, yet they only have seven neck bones, just like us! They also have black tongues, a color which scientists believe prevents sunburn. You learn these sorts of things when you hang out at the Reid Park Zoo, although it's usually so much fun that you don't realize you're getting smarter just being there. The recently added Expedition Tanzania added another seven acres to the zoo, making room for a herd of elephants that roam, trumpet and wallow in a mud pit made just for them. Animals from around the globe, educational activities, an interactive "wet-play" area and much more make this place a blast for the whole family.
