After all the rain and mucky weather in Minnesota the sun is starting to show up finally. A great place to visit if you are in the Twin Cities area is Como Park Zoo and Conservatory! Its free!
There are many friendly animals at the zoo. Visit the animals and become a zoologist for a day! Observe how and what they eat, how and where they sleep, and their daily living at the zoo. Again,the animals are super friendly. Animals you will find at the zoo are flamingo, giraffe, gorilla, lion, ostrich, penguin, polar bear, seahorse, seal, spider monkey, sloth, tiger, wolf, zebra, and many many more!

We visit the zoo quite often and we enjoy it every time we visit. The flowers and plant in the garden always seem to amaze us. There are different flowers constantly and every times we go there it is always something new. The animals are adorable, we especially enjoy observing the primates! We also stop by Como Town to enjoy foot long hot dogs and corn dogs, cotton candy, and snow cones.
Visit Como Park Zoo and Conservatory and I hope you enjoy the Zoo and Park!
