The zoo is rather large and has a lot of great animal exhibits. Much larger than the zoo in Honolulu that I was accustomed to. We grabbed our map and made our way along the path. The zoo is very easy to navigate and comes with a plethora of food options. It was crowded this day (but what can you expect on a free day?). Animal exhibits range from bears to zebras and everything in between.
During Christmas time, the zoo puts on Denver Zoo Lights where the entire zoo is decked out in hundreds of thousands of Christmas lights. Most animals can't be seen because it is dark but some are viewable in their holding areas such as elephants and giraffes. I love looking at Christmas lights so the zoo lights was a lot of fun. Of course, be prepared to have snow on the ground and cold temperatures.
