The largest metropolitan zoo in the US, this attraction is a must-see for anyone who loves wildlife. The 265-acre site is home to more than 6,000 animals, which are housed in re-creations of their natural habitats. Visitors can marvel at the gorillas of the Congo, the snow leopards of the Himalayas and the lemurs of Madagascar.
