I LOVE the Bronx Zoo! I feel like a little kid every time I visit. The Madagascar exhibit is really stunning, and I love watching the sea lions. I think the best time to visit is in the early fall, when it’s not too hot and the animals are active. There’s a lot of ground to cover, so make sure you get there early to give yourself plenty of time.
The Bronx Zoo is a favorite in our family. There is a lot to be seen. Our favorites are the Camels, Sea Lions and Giraffes. There is a wonderful Carousel that is a \”must\” stop for our five year old daughter. In the summer wednesdays is a suggested donation charge for entry. So it tends to be a bit crowded but it can save you a few bucks. I recommend getting to the zoo as early as possible. Animals are active and you can appreciate the park better.
