Columbus Ohio Zoo & Aquarium - a family outing
|My fave, the manatees. Their flippers have been damaged by boat propellers.|
The Zoo is large, allot a full day to see everything. There is no transportation within the zoo, be prepared and wear comfortable shoes. You can find discounted tickets at a local Kroger grocery store, there is one about 5 miles from the zoo.

There are Koala's, turtles and reptiles galore, penguins, Red River Hogs, Flying Fox Bats, Markhor, a ton of beautiful birds, and much more. One of the things I really like is the description on the animal boards talks about each animals level of extinction. There are a lot of great education opportunities and activities for kids and families.

Zoombezi Bay is a water park within zoo. The tickets are additional and it would be a full day event for my family of 4-5 (depending if my sister can join in the fun). It is on the kids list to go back and spend a day at the water park as well. Needless to say we will be returning to Columbus for another visit, hopefully soon.
