About these ratings

The Phoenix Zoo is a great place to enjoy nature without your little ones dying of boredom. There are multiple trails that wind through the numerous habitats represented on this 125-acre chunk of land. The zoo houses a variety of animals, including baboons, Sumatran tigers, Asian elephants, Gal├ípagos tortoises and Komodo dragons. Take younger tots to the Big Red Barn petting zoo or to the giraffe encounter where they can get some facetime with the animals. When their little legs start to tire, consider the 30-minute narrated safari train tour, which only costs a few dollars and provides a good orientation of the zoo.

Sitting just southwest of the Desert Botanical Gardens in Papago Park, the Phoenix Zoo operates seasonal hours so check the Phoenix Zoo website before heading over. Entry to the zoo costs $20 for adults, $14 for children ages 3 to 13 and free for children younger than 3.
