I recently took my first visit to the Bronx Zoo with my kids. We decided to go in the fall while the weather is nice and WOW was it fun. It was a really great time of year to visit the zoo. Most of the animals were out and about, nobody was too hot or too cold and we were able to walk around for hours before the whining set in!
The zoo itself is very clean and the staff was very friendly. We did need to refer to our map quite often, as the layout was a little bit confusing. My children really enjoyed the tiger and rhinoceros exhibits. They were able to get an up close and personal look at the animals. We really enjoyed seeing the tiger cubs frolicking and the rhinoceros running in his enclosure!
