Zoos in California

"The Great California! What an amazing state for kids! California is magical, it's diverse, and it has some brilliant places to visit with the family. This Golden State has beautiful natural forests, snow capped mountains, incredible deserts, and vibrant cities. You certainly won't be short on things to do with kids! With kids fun around every corner, they can immerse themselves in the rich history, or get wrapped up in the incredible culture. A state like no other!"

From exotic lions on safari to playful primates in the jungle, and even the creatures that live in the depths of our oceans, you don't have to travel the world to experience the amazing creatures that live on our planet. You just have to head to California!

California has a wealth of animal attractions that the family can enjoy. Whether it's the largest zoos, to the smallest sanctuaries, and even the most colorful aquariums - there are unforgettable animal experiences for the taking, and we can help you find them!

Did you know that one of the largest zoos in the entire world is in California? That's right - San Diego Zoo is right on your doorstep. Did you know that one of the oldest zoos in the USA is in California? Just head to Sequoia Park Zoo to experience that. 

Zoos and aquariums are also great learning experiences for kids, and with places such as San Fransisco Zoo and Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary being home to rare and endangered species, they can learn the importance of conservation too.  

Journey through the vast oceans, travel across the plains of Africa, explore the jungles of South America, bask in the deserts of the outback - all without leaving the state. Are you ready for a WILD day out? Let's go!
