The Toledo Zoo and Aquarium is one of the tops in the country. The Aquarium features 3,000+ aquatic animals in 178,000 gallons of water. The Zoo houses an internationally famous Hippoquarium®, where observers watch from inches away as hippos swim and play in their 360,000-gallon glass-sided pool. Other exhibits that make this zoo special are Arctic Encounter, Frog Town, Cheetah Valley, and Primate Forest. The exhibit, Africa! features free-roaming African animals such as giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, impalas, wild dogs, and ostriches. It can be enjoyed from an observation deck or the guided Safari train that circles the exhibit. Come, feed the giraffes.

Enjoy the aerial adventure course. Youngsters will especially enjoy riding the African animal carousel (made in Mansfield, Ohio), playing on the playground, visiting the Museum of Science, and petting the animals in the Children’s Zoo. And then there’s the food: Over a dozen eateries, including an outdoor gourmet restaurant, a barbecue pavilion, and a cafeteria built inside the former lion house.
