While it has been a while since I have lived in New Orleans, I do implore everyone to visit this zoo! A great combination of older city charm and ever-changing progress, I visit this zoo every time I go to New Orleans & there is always something new! A little bit high priced, but that is with everything "tourist-ty" in New Orleans...So take a leisurely stroll through the Orient, go get a small snoball at the stand by Monkey Hill, have a seat on "the Fly" and forget about all your worries for a day!
Pros: Great exhibits, friendly staff
Cons: slightly high priced
