I grew up near the Philadelphia Zoo and the one in Washington DC wasn’t but 2 hours away. I’ve been to the San Diego and Bronx Zoos too, so I think I’ve been to the four best zoos in the States. The Beardsley Zoo does not round out the top five, but it’s OUR zoo and has a cool history, so it’s worth checking out. Morally, I’m not yet settled on how I feel about zoos, so I’ll leave that up to you – after you read all about the Beardsley Zoo here.
