The Minnesota Zoo offers a fun day for all ages. The admission is kind of high for one day, however the memberships are very reasonable. If you live in the area and have small children, it pays to buy a membership. Parking is $5, but free to members. Some of the exhibits at the Minnesota Zoo include the Family Farm(farm animals), Discovery Bay (Sharks, Dolphins, and other aquatic animals), the Northern Trek, The Minnesota Trail, and the Tropics. They also have many different special events.
