North Carolina Zoo--Entertain for Less!!

Have you been to your local zoo lately? Trust me, you should go! I happen to live only about twenty minutes away from the NC Zoo. Although we don't go that often, it is a great place to spend a day. Plus you have the benefit of not having to pay that much for your family to get together and have a fun filled day. Parking is free! Adults can enter for only $10 a day and kids over age two are $6 a day. Kids under two are free! My son is just about to turn three, so this year we will have to pay for him.The Zoo is open year round, but I know I prefer going in warm weather. I am looking forward to going when Ryan can remember more of the experience--although pictures from past trips help him remember those. Parking is free and they provide a complimentary tram to and from the different Continents. They have North America and Africa, etc.Kids love animals-- lions, elephants, and polar bears just to name a few--and it can be just as interesting and fun for the parents too. Memories are made here, so don't forget your camera--there will be lots of pictures to take. Some of the drawbacks could be the large amount of walking you have to do. I like the walking myself--get some exercise while getting to see the zoo! Also food and souvenirs can be a little pricey. You can always skip those and bring a cooler in your car or grab a bite to eat before you get there or when leaving.Remember, next time you are thinking about a way to get out of the house and spend the day with your family, without breaking the bank, check out your local zoo!
