A Guide torepparttar San Diego Zoo

I recently visitedrepparttar 150752 San Diego Zoo, and it was much more fun than I expected it to be. First off,repparttar 150753 price was very reasonable. When you get there you haverepparttar 150754 option to buyrepparttar 150755 regular Zoo ticket orrepparttar 150756 deluxe ticket. I paid around $30 forrepparttar 150757 deluxe ticket which seemed like a deal to me since I am used to paying around $50 for Disneyland and Sea World tickets. The deluxe ticket is definitely worthrepparttar 150758 extra ten dollars. It consists of a 40-minute guided tour, unlimited access torepparttar 150759 express bus that takes you from place to place, and unlimited access torepparttar 150760 aerial tram.

If you have never been torepparttar 150761 San Diego Zoo before, I would suggest going onrepparttar 150762 guided tour first. It only lasts about 40 minutes, and takes you aroundrepparttar 150763 entire zoo. The tour has plenty of stops where you can see many ofrepparttar 150764 most popular animals such as African elephants, tigers, and bears. The Zoo is huge, so takingrepparttar 150765 guided tour is also a good way to familiarize yourself with its layout.

The bus drops you off nearrepparttar 150766 elephants, where you will also find tigers and leopards. If you want to grab a bite to eat, there are a couple of nearby places where you can get some good food. After you finishrepparttar 150767 tour I would suggest walking aroundrepparttar 150768 edges ofrepparttar 150769 park. The Zoo is round, so you will see most ofrepparttar 150770 animals by going aroundrepparttar 150771 edges. You will find zebras, bears, camels, and many other interesting animals that I never even knew existed.
