Como zoo is a great, traditional animal zoo. First of all it is FREE, which is always great. Second, it is outdoors only, so you can only go when the weather is good. What I like about this zoo is that it has traditional animals like zebras, elephants, lions. These are animals you will not find at the MN zoo. Like anywhere, the food is expensive, so bring your own lunch. There is a separate area of rides for the kids, but I have not gone there yet. There is also a nice park across the street for after the zoo, or for lunch! This is a great place to go!
