If you're going to go to a zoo, definitely visit Memphis Zoo! They take great care of their animals and are very educational for kids. I had connections there so I got in for free, but the admission price is around $15-$20 I believe. It seems a little expensive but with the size of the zoo you will get your money's worth. I think the best part of the zoo is that you will get a chance to see a Giant Panda. These are a rare sight to see in the U.S. because Panda's are very expensive to ship and lease in the U.S. I think at the moment, there are only a dozen pandas total throughout all of the zoos in the U.S. Also, they have polar bears! Being a native to Florida, I have never seen any animal from a cold climate so what a sight this was! I know the panda thing might not convince a lot of people to go but it's totally worth it. You really don't get to see a lot of these species at just any zoo and I really appreciate how they take care of their animals. Definitely a winner!
