Guide To The Minnesota Zoo

We’re the kind of family that makes at least one trek to each of the zoos in the Twin Cities every year. We love both the Minnesota Zoo and Como Zoo, each for different reasons. When we’re in the mood for a more intimate day that involves less time and considerably less walking, we head to Como. And when we’re craving the full-blown, walk until you drop, all day experience, we head to the Minnesota Zoo!
