The Minnesota Zoo is awesome, it's large enough for a full day of fun, love the cafe its great spot to stop and have lunch or bring your own without restrictions.
The Minnesota Zoo offers a variety of exotic animals as well as daily feedings, demos and shows like the Tropical Reef Dive Show and the Monk Seal Demo. See the animals in person in one of eight distinct trails or areas, and then see them on screen with a documentary at the IMAX Theatre.
Great Zoo! Very big, lots to look at, fun for both adults and children :) Check the website for activities and events happening. Once a month they host Adult Night. It's open for 21+ after 4pm with bartenders set up throughout the zoo. It's a fun time!
Well-laid out zoo with a wide variety of animals. They have some adult-only nights which are really nice.
