We took the kids to the Minnesota Zoo and they were SO excited to go and see all the animals. I have to admit that I was really looking forward to it too. The day started out rainy and I was worried that we wouldn’t get to go but it cleared up and turned out to be a really hot day with a few scattered showers while we were at the zoo. Luckily there was plenty to do indoors while it was raining and we didn’t get too wet.
We arrived around noon and found that most of the animals were snoozing away the hot day. We definitely learned that the best time to visit the zoo is in the morning or late afternoon/early evening as that is when the animals were most active.
A few more tips to navigate your trip to the Minnesota Zoo:
-If you are looking to save money then bring a picnic lunch and eat in the provided picnic areas
-Bring plenty of water!
-Bring a stroller for your kids. We brought our double and our single stroller so that each of our 3 kids had a place to ride. It’s a LOT of walking for little legs.
-Don’t forget sunscreen, hats and sunglasses
-Arrive in the morning or late day for the most active animals
-Bring your kids swimsuits and they can play in the water fountain
-Don’t forget your camera!
Stay tuned for pics of their awesome new Dinosaurs Exhibit! It was Aiden’s favorite part of our whole trip!
