This enjoyable little zoo isn't the biggest, most exotic or most glamorous you've ever been to, but, superlatives aside (and unless you're used to heavy hitters like San Diego), it's worth a visit if you've got kids in tow. There are more than 2,800 animals on exhibit, spread out over 84 acres in Mohawk Park. All the biggies are represented: lions, tigers and bears (oh, my), as well as giraffes, monkeys and elephants. The Living Museum complex adds a new dimension to the zoo-going experience with some of the plants, minerals and geographical features of North America. It’s located just northeast of Downtown.
