It's impossible to visit without stopping at the Monterey Aquarium! Described as one of the finest in the world, it is indeed very impressive. Inside you'll find a huge variety of species of fish, jellyfish, otters, turtles, flamingos, starfish and even more! Towards the beginning of the visit, you'll see a lrge tank where a diver handfeeds the fish while a guide provides information on the mic. It's informative not only for the kids but for adults too.
The Bronx Zoo is a great place for family days out. They have all types of species of wildlife, divided into the categories of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, insects and fish.

This area is especially for little kids and is part of the Lincoln Park Zoo, but is in a separate space. This is an authentic farmhouse in the middle of the city and is sponsored by the tractor manufacturer John Deere. It is not a petting farm, where children can touch the animals, but rather is a farm in which groups of volunteers perform all the tasks in view of visitors. One can see how cows are milked, for example, or watch the chicks hatching. If you're lucky, you can also try some of the products grown in the allotment ... Admission is free.
It is the best zoo I have been to. Many high quality exhibits from the Desert Dome to the Lied Jungle.
There is even an amazing aquarium that comes at no additional cost. It takes more than one visit to see everything that is available at this zoo. Whenever you're in the area, stop by the Henry Doorly Zoo!
Went last January to Wild Animal Park which is a great place to experience with the family and be able to sense the presence of different species of animals and enjoy different attractions. I personally loved it as a place that really reflects life in Africa. It is a place of conservation that holds a great concentration of various types of animals such as giraffes rhinos, and much more

The Green Meadows Farm in Kissimmee is just minutes from Orlando and part of one of the attractions to visit family in the area. On the farm, children interact freely and naturally with animals, you can feed and brush them, ride ponies and even milk a cow. We were there with friends in January 2007, and my son could see kids and newborn chicks that had just hatched, one day in contact with beautiful nature.
