  • Great place for the family. Go early and get a two day pass. I was truly amazed that they allow you to bring in your own food and drink. There are several picnic areas as well. There are actually some pretty good places to eat if you don't want to bring your food. The animals are very well cared for and you can tell that all of the staff enjoy their jobs. Very informative Park good for all ages if you live nearby consider getting an annual pass

  • One of the best Zoos in the country for a reason, it's an awesome place to visit! Very easy to get in the door and start seeing all the animals. Everything is super clean, as well as the enclosures (which are usually pretty large and elaborate). Plenty of cool information everywhere about what you're looking at, and the staff and volunteers are always there to help. Do: Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Bring some water in a hydration pack if you don't want to buy bottles. Get a map when you walk in. Wear sunblock.

  • Honestly, what more can I say that hasn't already been said? The San Diego is world-famous, and rightfully so. The experience is almost overwhelming for a visitor, with so many animals to see in so little time. Spending an entire day here was simply not enough. Everything is so well-maintained and, from the looks of the construction going on, about to get even better. The entrance fee here may be steep, but completely worth it. Schedule an entire day for a visit and come say hi to all the animals! Especially the koalas!

  • I usually don't enjoy zoos... but this zoo has earned every star. It is extremely clean and well kept. The staff is very knowledgeable and caring. The park is very large with much to offer. Don't miss visiting this zoo if you are near the San Diego area. Wear comfortable shoes and give yourself 4-5 hours to enjoy what the park has to offer.

  • Lots of flash not much zoo. They try to be a fancy theme park but there are not many animals and the decor is as fake as it gets. I would happily pay 20 dollars for it but not 50. On the plus side, the location is great and there are several museums nearby! You can put together a fun weekend in the area for sure.
