AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium conveniently share their Highland Park location, and one ticket gets you into both. The enormous complex is open every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day, and parking is free. A bit about what they have: the zoo has over 400 species of animals, 22 of them threatened or endangered. So yeah, you're gonna see bears, lions and giraffes, but wait until you get a glimpse of the rare black-and-white ruffed lemur and the endangered snow leopard. The aquarium has glowing moon jellyfish and the incomparably beautiful seahorse cousin the leafy seadragon. Whatever you do, don't miss Kid's Kingdom, which features animals native to Pennsylvania (education you can use every day) and a petting zoo.
