San Diego Zoo
June 2014
Everyone loves the zoo. I'm lucky to live near the wonderful Philadelphia Zoo. However, you haven't been to a zoo until you've been to the famous San Diego Zoo. It is huge. According to my FitBit, we walked over 11 miles in the few hours we were there and we still didn't see every exhibit. It was a sunny and humid day, but the zoo was one of the highlights of the trip.
