Toledo Zoo & Aquarium: The Toledo Zoo isn’t just known as the best zoo in Ohio, it’s the best zoo in America, according to USA TODAY in 2014. And rightfully so considering its many firsts such as the internationally known hippoquarium. The zoo’s aquarium has one of the most diverse collections of any zoo-aquarium in the country. 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, and can be enjoyed from an observation deck or the guided Safari train that circles the exhibit itself.
