The zoo has come a long way in its short life. Just a few decades old, it has bloomed from petting zoo to a full-blown, fabulous zoo offering a meandering exploration of the unusual and the exotic. An excellent interactive area called Critter Encounters lets kids (and yes, moms and dads) get up close with alpacas and other beasts, while the Gibbon Islands area offers mesmerizing, open-air views of primates. There’s also an historic farm area, daily keeper talks and animal encounters, and special seasonal events. The zoo is one of the tops things to do in Nashville, so be sure to visit while on your enjoying your Nashville vacation.
