What is there to do?

The animal world has never been so close, and all it takes it a visit to Akron Zoo!

This popular Ohio zoo is where you can come nose-to-nose with more than 700 animals, including endangered Humboldt penguins, snow leopards, Sumatran tigers, jaguars and Komodo dragons.

Pretty exciting stuff indeed!

Throughout the zoo you'll find a number of exhibits that are filled with animals encounters, stories, and learning experiences, so it really will be a WILD day out!

Visit Legends Of The Wild and you can learn how the Jaguar got it's spots, or how the Andean condor carries the sun into the sky. At the Mike & Mary Grizzly Ridge, you can watch those adorable grizzly bears run, play and swim in their pool, marvel at red wolves and bald eagles, or watch the river otters play!

It's about those grand creatures in Tiger Valley, where lions, tigers, and primates roam proud. If you take a peak in the animal hospital nearby you might just see the vets caring for an animal too!

Kids can see penguins interacting with them at Penguin Point, or enjoy a real interactive experience at Farmland, where they can pet, feed and get right up close to domestic animals such as sheep, pigs, and even a resident barn owl!

If THAT wasn't enough, Akron Zoo also have a fun carousel to ride, train to enjoy, and play areas for the kids!
