Woodland Park Zoo
Woodland Park Zoo is an award-winning zoo and a must to visit. Only minutes from busy downtown, the zoo let's you step into an African savanna, an Asian elephant habitat and a tropical rain forest. The zoo also brings special exhibits, which have included monitor dragons, butterflies and other bugs and beasts. Bring a picnic to enjoy on the green lawns of Woodland Park, which surrounds the zoo. You also won't want to miss the nearby Rose Garden.
The Woodland Park Zoo is a great place for families visiting Seattle. There are a variety of animals ranging from lions to snakes. There is a food cort and several preformances with animals through out the day. The zoo is huge, so make sure to bring a pair of good walking shoes and don't expect young children to walk on their own, instead, push them in a stroller. I would suggest that you go during the week if you can because the zoo is usually packed on the weekends.
