Yesterday Hailey and I decided to venture to the Riverbanks Zoo, which is conveniently 5 miles from our house! The zoo itself was pretty cheap, only costing $16. It had a lot to offer including all the animals you would normally see at a zoo, as well as: USA top 25 Botanical Garden, an awesome kids splash area (which I totally played in), tones of food options (which is where the prices always getchya), and a crazy ape exhibit with apes you could hear from all over the zoo!
Check out the Riverbanks zoo:
It was the perfect day for a zoo trip, really. The only downside is it was a chilly 92 degrees, with a heat index of 99 (sarcasm).
All in all it is a beautiful zoo, and as far as zoo’s go it was probably one of my favorites. Definitely worth the visit!
