Love fresh mountain air and animals? Then, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is the place for you. Visit with African elephants, zebras and even naked mole rats all while enjoying a wonderful view!
We think San Diego might take the grand prize for best city to live in if you’re an animal lover!
Even if you can’t make it to one of the top 5 zoos this year, show your nearest zoological park some love and plan a day to visit. We promise you’ll learn a lot, be inspired and have an overall great time!
Oh, and Happy National Zoo Lovers Day!
