Always good - a must if you are in San Diego. A great classic. Love the flamingos and the petting zoo.
I took my daughter, who was visiting from Oregon to the zoo. The cool weather kept the crowds down nicely, with the added benefit of the animals all being quite active. The koalas, pandas, lion, etc. were all out and about-and no lines! Wear your walking shoes though-the zoo is large with hills but the recent upgrades to the animals... More
Skyfari is way too cool kids love it , all animals are very much visible , try to go in the morning to see all active animals, shows in the open air theater are very much worth it.. Try not to explore everything in one day in summer time it could be very exhausting.
I would recommend San Diego zoo to anyone, young or old. From the moment you walk in the gate, 100 pink flamingoes right in front of you to the moment you leave you know you are in a special place
I love this zoo! Every time I am in San Diego I go over for a visit. I learn something new every time too! This time I learned more about the pandas. They are the best place to see pandas and have done more for the population of pandas than any other zoo in the USA!
Unless you arrive when they open and can walk all day there's too much to see in one day, especially during the summer when they have special shows. If they offer a special multiday pass you'll want to seriously consider it, they might let you delay the decision to pay extra for the multiday pass when you're ready to leave.... More
Many animals and very organized with a bus that you can take to get orientated with the park before you walk to see the animals up close. You'll need all day if you want to see all the animals.
I've been to zoos all over the USA, and the San Diego Zoo is one of the better ones. We went during "Kids Free" October, and even though the zoo was to the brim with elementary school field trips, the only place we felt crowded was the panda exhibit, where we waited in line for about 45 minutes. For the... More
We visited this zoo a few years ago, and made it our first adventure when visiting this past fall. It is definitely an American treasure, and not to be missed, when in the area. We were privileged to join a tour with "ZOOMAN", which was the bonus of the day's visit; his behind-the-scenes commentary was humorous, as well as educational.
Was a nice day for my wife and I. We enjoyed our visit and saw many animals we had not seen before. Zoo is very hilly so be prepared for a good day of walking. While overall the zoo was very good we did find the enclosures to be very small. Were glad to be visiting in low season, would... More
