Fodor's Review

This compact zoo's gorgeous grounds shelter elephants, gorillas, exotic birds, and big cats. For small children, there's a scenic railroad and barnyard petting zoo. Three high-tech dinosaurs perform in live stage shows (free with admission), daily in summer and on weekends the rest of the year. The palm-studded lawns on a hilltop overlooking the beach are perfect spots for family picnics.
