The Hogle Zoo is simply an amazing zoo visit for kids and adults who enjoy watching the faces of children take in the beauty of animals in a gorgeous setting.

We went on a special event night for a 21+ crowd. They had beer & wine available for purchase throughout the zoo. The zoo is small in comparison to other major cities however the exhibits are nice & well kept. Good times.

We got there in the first hour when they had opened, a little disappointed that we didn't get to see many of the animals, they were not up and active. Not that much to see anymore!

The zoo is located outside of the main part of town, at the beginning of Emigration Canyon. It's a small zoo (about 42 acres) but thoughtfully laid out to highlight the various countries/area in the world and the creatures that inhabit them. (I was especially...More
