  • Totally Worth the Cost
    by  on 04/22/2011

    WOW!! I've only been here once or twice because it's so expensive but the price is totally worth it and you can tell the difference when compared to other zoos.\r \r I'm originally from St. Louis where we have a free zoo so I was surprised when I moved to San Diego that the zoo was so pricey, but the difference is profound. The animals are so healthy and active whereas in St. Louis they hide most of the time or are sleeping. They feed the animals more naturally here by having them search for their food instead of giving them a bowl full. The enclosure quality is gorgeous as well as the entire park's landscaping. It's just an amazing place to be and definitely well worth paying the extra money for.\r \r I do suggest getting there very early because dowtown San Diego is not fun to drive in (sudden change from three lanes to one lane!!). And try to find off-street parking (save the parking money for admission), Balboa Park is beautiful to walk in anyway so you might want to walk anyway.

    I went to this zoo in the summer and it was so hot but fun. There were more summery animals there. The flamigo area smelled pretty bad. The snake room kinda scared me since the glass was so clear. But this is a perfect plce to take your kids.

    San Diego zoo is a really nice zoo, but I grew up my whole life believing this was going to be a holy grail of zoo experiences. I really loved that there's no smoking anywhere in the zoo and the layout and landscaping are wonderful, but I think the reason for this zoo's over-inflated reputation is down to the fact that it's one of the best zoos in the USA and there's LOTS of Americans to sing its praises, most of whom have never experienced some of the world's great zoos. I found this to be bigger than, but not better than the zoo in my home town of Perth Western Australia. More animals and features, but weaker on the habitats and overall vibe.

    Not only is the San Diego Zoo a great place to visit, it's breeding program to protect endangered species is helping to keep all animals available for future generations!

  • Incredible Experience
    by  on 11/17/2009

    The San Diego Zoo has the most amazing selection of animals, rare plants, and activities of any zoo I have been to. Not only do they have a world renowned preservation and recovery for their animals but they also have an incredible reputation for rehabilitating abused animals. I love this zoo.

    San Diego Zoo is the worlds greatest zoo if you love Animals and want to see them in a habitat outside their natural environment. They have established great enclosures to ensure the animals have a home enivornment. A great place to visit at least once a month.

  • I love the Zoo

    My family goes to the zoo all the time and we are San Diego residents. We bring our lunch and see the animals and sit and have a picnic. We have annual passes which are pretty inexpensive. We love this place
