Ninety minutes at Phoenix Zoo.
Home to more than 1,300 animals, including 200 endangered or threatened birds, mammals and reptiles, this Valley destination is a favorite with kids and adults alike. View elephants, tortoises and Monkey Village along the
Tropics Trail; see camels on your way to the Africa Trail, with its cheetahs, lions and hyenas; then stop in front of the Zoo’s signature exhibit, the Savanna. The Arizona Trail highlights species native to Arizona, such as javelinas and the Mexican grey wolf. In addition to the trails, enjoy the 4-D Theatre, Harmony Farm area at the Children’s Zoo, and Stingray Bay. Children can bring their bathing suits and play at Leapin’ Lagoon and Yakulla Caverns, water amusement areas. Zoo tours also available. Some experiences are an additional fee. www.phoenixzoo.com
