Like I said in my review about the National Zoo here in Washington, it's a great place to spend some time in the great outdoors without having to leave the metro area. It's easy to reach by car or metro. I've taken a couple of my friends and family here and all of them enjoyed it equally. Most of them hadn't been to a zoo in a very long time. I don't know, I've always enjoyed going to the zoo. It pleases my inner child. lol
Word to the wise, bring your own snacks. I don't really like the food at the zoo. But then again, I avoid fast food as much as possible at any other time as well. There are plenty of shady picnic areas around to have a bite and a rest. The zoo is pretty big. I usually start at the petting zoo and work my way up by the monkeys and reptiles towards the Asian trail where the pandas are and walk back on the other side of the zoo, passing the bird house and Amazonia. It works out very well because it's mostly down hill from the bird house. I do NOT recommend going the other way towards the bird house!! It's going to be very tiring!! Hey, but if that's your thing, knock yourself out! ;)
