|About these ratings|
Zoo Atlanta is said to be average at best, with the exception of its Panda exhibit. It has a very impressive panda breeding program -- resident pandas Lun Lun and Yang Yang have successfully parented three of their own cubs since 2006, (the youngest cub, Po, joined the clan on Nov. 3, 2010). You can always check the family's progress on the PandaCam on the Zoo's website before you head over.
Some recent visitors complain about admission price ($21 a head) and the concession stands being shut down at odd times of the day. However, many agree that this is a worthwhile stop, especially if you have kids in tow. "This zoo has a big variety of animals to see," says one TripAdvisor user. "I would recommend this attraction to both young and young at heart."
Zoo Atlanta is located in Grant Park and welcomes visitors Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on weekends from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. To learn more, visit the zoo's website.
