Probably the most famous zoo in the world, San Diego Zoo earns the title. Not only is this zoo huge (take the tram from section to section…it’s stroller-friendly) but it has some of the best conservation projects and animal exhibits out there. We like to eat at Albert’s in the zoo: kids can eat outside overlooking a waterfall, and they have the healthiest kids’ meals. Remember that zoos close early!
