When Is The Last Time You Went To The Zoo?We had a blast at the Portland Zoo earlier this summer. We were lucky to be there for $2 Tuesdays. Then we went to our local zoo, Wildlife Safari... neither my DH or I had been there for years and were in for quite a few surprises. First off the admission price had skyrocketed! It was $17 a person. Yes, really! Thank goodness the kids were free or we would have spent nearly $60 just for the drive through the park.
It was much cleaner and well taken care of than I remember as a child. *cough* I think now I know why! I took the kids on a train ride around the park. Oddly, we couldn't see anything different other than a few research buildings, but it was only $2 a person (3 & under free!). My son adored the petting zoo - what kid doesn't? And he loved feeding the goldfish.
We had a great time and hit the park during feeding time so most animals were visible. My son was so excited! I was shell-shocked for most of the trip since I could easily see a family of 4 spending $100 for a trip to the zoo. Thank goodness my kids can't eat anything from the snack area.
So, when is the last time you went to a zoo? Do you have one near your home? If so, I hope it isn't as expensive as ours! Have a great Friday everyone.
