A premier zoo for animal breeding, Philadelphia Zoo is known for the variety of primate species that live there. The Rare Animal Conservation Center offers an up-close view of rare species and features interactive graphics. In other areas you'll view the antics of otters and red pandas, as well as the grace of big cats. Take time to visit the aviaries, which teem with feathered friends. You'll be able to spot the zoo anywhere in the city--the Zooballoon, a tethered balloon that floats high above the skyline, marks its location. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Philadelphia Zoo and many more Philadelphia attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Philadelphia trip site.
Philadelphia Zoo reviews
We had a wonderful time at the zoo, taking advantage of a beautiful Saturday in November. As suggested by the Zoo, booked online with timed tickets for 10am. We arrived 10 minutes earlier and we... more »

Name the Animal and you will find it here. Good grouping of animals. Well maintained place. Easy to hangout and find specific animals. Carry a zoo map at entrance. Can spend easily 2 to 3 hrs in this place. They have a boating option too for interested ones.
We took a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo fro NYC. We got there around 11 AM on Wednesday morning and the place was practically empty except from a few camp trips there. The main parking lots still had lots of space. Parking is $16. Though the surrounding neighborhood isn't the best, the short walk from the parking lot to the zoo entrance is safe. The admission to the zoo is about $20-25. There are lots of animals at the zoo, all with adequate space. All animals appeared to be well maintained and cared for. As with most zoos, the earlier you get there the better..less crowds, closer parking and active animals. There are a few areas to grab a bit to eat as well as restrooms. Unfortunately, it was raining quite a bit that day so our trip was cut short. We plan on attending again soon. Keep in mind that if you plan to visit more than once in a year, the membership might be worthwhile. The membership includes unlimited admission for one year and includes parking and discounts at the zoo store and eateries throughout the zoo.
