Maryland Zoo in Baltimore
Maryland Zoo in Baltimore Review
The 150 acres of the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore—the third-oldest zoo in the country—are a natural stomping ground for little ones seeking out the spectacle of elephants, lions, giraffes, hippos, and penguins, among the more than 2,000 animals that make this their home. Favorite spots include the giraffe-feeding station, the polar bear arctic pool, and a petting zoo with a re-created barnyard. Also, don't miss the new (opened in 2010) Jones Falls Zephyr, a locomotive modeled on an 1863 locomotive that takes visitors on a 10-minute ride alongside the African Journey exhibit.Book online and save $2 per ticket. Surrounding the zoo is grand, leafy Druid Hill Park, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr.
