I was sold tickets to the San Diego Zoo and went to go and they were closed. Couldn’t get in or find anyone to talk to about a refund. Very expensive and frustrating.

It’s a bit different during these covid times but seems pretty safe with all the hand gel stations and staff members reminding people to keep masks on.

This is a must-see zoo for all of you animals/zoo lovers if you are ever in San Diego, it is a part of the wonderful Balboa Park, which contains a lot of fun museums and activities. The zoo is very large in size, it has so many different varieties of animals, and it would take you the whole day to really see everything and read about the animals, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. Plan your day carefully, start by studying the map and making a route, don’t get lost always check with your map, I actually consulted some of the volunteers on the best route to follow, and they were very helpful, also make sure to ask about any available activities and plan your day accordingly if you are interested in any of them.

If you're in the area and you have time this is a must-do thing. It's one of the few world-class zoos anywhere in the United States. It is famous for that. Make sure to plan some time in your vacation for this place with or without children.
