Columbus Zoo


Yesterday we headed to the Columbus Zoo with two of our friends. Since it's a 3.5 hour drive from our place we hit the road bright and early {6:30am!!!} and got to the zoo around 10am.

The weather couldn't have been more perfect at 65 degrees and sunny. The animals were active and we didn't get too hot walking around. It also happened to be fall fest this past weekend so we got to see pumpkin carvings, special bands, ect.

 If this picture wasn't $13 for a 5x7 I would've definitely bought it!

We saw all of the animals within the main area of the zoo and got to see the Jack Hanna show!!

How adorable?!

Jack Hanna seemed like an incredibly nice guy and I'm glad we caught the show.

My favorite part was watching the Polar Bears get fed!

 It was definitely worth the 7 hour drive and we can't wait to go back next year once the Safari Africa opens!

Do you like visiting the zoo?
If so, what are your favorite animals?


  1. This looks like so much fun!!! I'm glad you had a great time!

    I ALSO love the polar bears!! And the sea otters!

  2. I love the zoo. We just recently got Panda Bears added to our zoo and they are so cute. I also love the penguins! :)

    1. Panda's are my favorite!! I've only seen them at San Deigo, but we definitely want to see them at the National Zoo in DC too eventually.

  3. I love the zoo! I'm so bummed I didn't get to go this year. Hopefully I'll be able to go to the Columbus Zoo one day. It looks amazing! (:

  4. I have never been tot he Columbus Zoo! But I love our Riverbanks Zoo. I'd have to say my favorite part is the Giraffes, only because who doesn't fangirl over the fact that you can feed Giraffes there? haha.

    1. We fed the giraffes at the Battle Creek zoo last month and it was cool! The Columbus Zoo is currently redoing their Safari section, so no giraffes until next year!

  5. I love the zoo! they are always so fun. Looks like you had a great time.
