The Toledo Zoo and Aquarium are such an enjoyable place. Easy parking. Beautiful grounds, anytime of year. Exhibits are well maintained. Always some sort of activity for the kids to enjoy. I would highly recommend.

This zoo is wonderful! It is not overly spread out so you don't get tired walking between exhibits. The new-er aquarium is the best! They work really hard to have seasonal activities and their Christmas lights display should not be missed.

What an amazing number of beautiful Chinese lanterns on display for Luminous Nights! Many of the animal houses (including the aquarium) are open during this evening event. Much to enjoy.

This Zoo is larger than those in Cleveland and Pittsburgh. It also has more animals and larger exhibits. I want to make it out to this again as they have Hippopotamus that the other zoos around me do not.

Depends on the weather. Not as busy then in summer or warmer weather. Light before Christmas starts nov 17, 2017 thru dec 31. It is a great time to grab a cup of hot coco and walk around the zoo.
