San Diego Zoo

wpadmin_garden Activities For Everyone, Activities For Kids

 With over 4,000 animals, the San Diego Zoo is one of the largest and most popular zoos throughout the world.  Its 800 unique species are arranged in habitats of different climatic zones along with an expansive free-flight aviary and arboretum with a collection of rare plants.  The San Diego Zoo is also one of the few places to house the endangered Giant Panda, and this is barely scratching the surface on all the zoo’s exhibits!
Directions from the hotel: Because the zoo is right downtown, there are many highway routes to reach it from the hotel.  The easiest way is to follow Interstate Highway 5 (San Diego Freeway) all the way until the Park Blvd exit just east of Highway 163 (Cabrilo Freeway).  From there, turn left to head north along Park Blvd until Zoo Pl.  Turn left onto Zoo Pl to access the main parking complex.
