There are two reasons I like going to the Zoo. I enjoy watching the animals, and I enjoy watching the kids having fun at the zoo. The MN Zoo is the perfect place for both. There are tigers, bears, penguins, sharks, farm animals, and a lot of others too. My kids also love the play park at the Zoo. I even went with a middle school field trip and the playground was still well used. Admission is $12 or $18, and the Zoo is open 365 days a year, a thirty minute drive from Hudson.
When you first get to the Zoo, remember to check out the schedule to see the different animal feedings and the bird show.
