Day 3: Zoo Atlanta
When a traveling menagerie went bankrupt in Atlanta in 1889, nobody could have anticipated that it would transform into what is today a flourishing city zoo. A vast array of animals call this location home and Zoo Atlanta holds the title of the city’s longest standing cultural institution. Providing a place for people and animals to co-exist, learn and grow, Zoo Atlanta is a great springtime stop that provides cooler weather and helps guests avoid the summertime crowds. Guests have opportunities to watch trainers feeding the animals and participate in educational presentations that are held daily onsite. Come see the many lions, elephants, monkeys and more that thrive within this center of conservation.
