I had never gone to the Nashville Zoo until I was an adult and I loved it. It might not be the biggest or best, but the atmosphere is what makes it special. Located in the middle of Nashville, that gives it a special zest. This will zoo will bring out the inner child in all of us. I always thought it would be a waste of time and money to go to the central park zoo when we have the Atlanta Zoo is so much bigger, but I was really impressed with it when I finally did go and see it. It is the perfect size so you are not tired out by the time you are finished. They have penguins, seals, polar bears and a great petting zoo. Recommended!
