These Are the Best Zoos You Can Visit in America

If you love exotic animals but you don’t want to keep any as pets, then the zoo is the place for you. Zoos are great for animals fans and they’re family-friendly, too, but not every zoo is quite the same. From coast to coast, these are the best zoos in America, according to TimeOut.

The best zoos are in every corner of the country, but we’ll visit one where the climate is perfect for the animals (page 8) and one that’s out in the middle of nowhere (page 10).

  • Location: Denver

The Denver Zoo has two major pluses that make it one of the best zoos in the United States:

  • It’s just a few blocks from the heart of the city.
