We went to the Denver Zoo for the day. It was hot but there were alot of places to cool off. The animals were amazing and really cool to see. Well worth the money.

Went to zoo early. Was not busy. Food was good. But like most zoos. Food is expensive. Buy the Denver city pass. You can see 3 diff places and makes it cheaper. Lots of animals. Fun time.

Beautiful habitats! Unusual animals! Benches lining paved walkways. Some shade, but not enough, on a hot summer day. Vendors offering ice cream and drinks. Very clean. Good signage. We will go again!
