Field trip Fridays: San Diego Zoo
I was here in May while visiting a friend. We spent the entire day here! And we probably could have spent more, since we didn't even get to see the polar bears or part of the African animals. This is a great place, expensive yes, but apparently San Diego schools get a discount for coming here. And if it's a common thing to do for school trips, then there must be a lot of resources and lessons to tie-in with the zoo visit.
My favorites were the pandas, the ocelot, and the reptile house. The food here is expensive, so I would pack a picnic lunch. I don't think they allow outside food in the zoo, but you can get a stamp and re-enter the same day for free.
