Places to Go (Vacation) - The long drive home on 1-80, Part 2 - The Pittsburgh Zoo (Pittsburgh, PA)


On the last day of our trip home from Chicago, temperatures dropped to the mid-70s while the skies stayed blue and cloudless, so it seemed criminal not to spend some time outside. Thus, we decided to spend the day at the Pittsburgh Zoo. Apparently we weren't the only people who wanted to appreciate the flawless weather, as crowds filled every nook and cranny of the zoo's space. Luckily, most of the exhibits had large viewing areas with close-up animals, so even with hoards of people, we still managed to see quite a variety of wildlife. P had a blast running through the waterpark area, over and over again. And, when he wasn't crying, T loved playing in all the old animal traveling enclosures, located throughout the zoo. F studied the maps and signs and tried to learn as much as possible, overwhelming us with facts on the way home.

All in all a great place to visit, though after three hours, we all expressed a need to be home with dad/Dan, after a good, but long week away.

If you're interested, admission is $14 for adults and $12 for children ages 2-12. Click here for more information.
