Beautiful exhibits and a great variety of exotic animals. They seem to be pretty adapted to the climate which was a little cold for most of them.

Cannot beat this zoos location. Giraffes are one of the best parts. Definitely worth a visit especially with your young ones. This is a Colorado Mountain zoo, be prepared for some walking but they do offer shuttles if needed.

Still loads of fun to feed the giraffes, see all the animals so close up and to not suffer a lot of crowds. Better than the Denver Zoo and our daughter still loves it as a pre-teen.
