One of my favorite things to do when visiting a new city is to spend a day checking out their zoo. And the Denver Zoo is no exception to this – just because I live here doesn’t mean that I skip it. Instead, I get a yearly pass so that I can go enjoy the zoo whenever I feel like it. But you do not have to be a local to have a good time visiting the zoo in Denver. In fact, I recommend it to anyone who is visiting the city. It is a great place to visit for people of all ages.
Covering 80 acres, this is a fairly large zoo. So, do give yourself a full day to properly take it in without missing anything or having to hurry through the exhibits and habitats. The admission cost for adults is only $13. And you will get to see a lot of great animals for that low price.
The river otters are my favorite, but you will find tons of different animals to choose from when it comes to picking your own favorite. Maybe the adorable red panda will get your number one pick!
A cool thing about the zoo is that they often have special events going on throughout the year. So, whether you want to take part in an animal feeding or a holiday celebration, there is certain to be something awesome going on at the Denver Zoo for you to check out.
