Have you and your kids made a trek to the Toledo Zoo and Aquarium lately? It’s closer than you think – and there’s loads to see and do! The newly renovated aquarium is now open, filled to the gills with 3,000-plus aquatic animals in 178,000 gallons of water (that’s four times the volume as it was before), and it’s included with your regular zoo admission. Plus, the USA Today Best 10 list dubbed it the “Best US Zoo” in 2014, calling it “one of the most complete zoos in the world” with 9,000 critters representing 800-plus species. No wonder the Toledo Zoo and Aquarium is often named one of Ohio’s top family attractions.
Why not check out the elephants, hippoquarium, cool polar bears, children’s zoo and other attractions for yourself this summer? Metro Parent is excited to be giving away four tickets for one lucky family to make the trip and hang out with the birds, mammals, insects, reptiles and amphibians for one fun-packed day.
