Toledo Zoo Toledo
Best Zoo in area, wonderful exhibits and very family friendly , Columbus is great but very big, Toledo has used its urban location to great advantage and you can create and interact with lots of animals up close.
Some of the many highlights included: Africa (highly recommend the giraffe feeding - generous portions - and the safari ride), the Aquarium (touch tank was very popular), Tembo Trail (hippos were very photogenic,...

Lagoon Deer Park Sandusky
Best zoo ever
You will see animals you do not see in zoos and some probably you have never seen.
Aside from the drive thru feedings, there is a small zoo including warthogs, birds, monkeys, and kangaroo.
African Safari is certified by Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), so you can expect appropriate standards for safety and treatment of animals.

It's great, educational fun, and they also have a small petting zoo that you can walk thru before or after your ride on the train.
The petting Zoo where you can but food in cones for 25 cents was a blast interacting with the goats and donkeys and bulls and chickens!
The Greater Cleveland Aquarium is thoughtful in its design, allowing for great views of their diverse aquatic inhabitants from multiple angles.
We love aquariums - grew up going to Shedd, later several trips to Chattanooga's and Atlanta's when we moved south and in various trips Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, the National Aquarium, the Newport Aquarium...
