The Philadelphia Zoo has so much to offer. Not only can you see the animals, but they have newly added features that will make your experience better.


The beer and wine garden, The Watering Hole, is a nice place to take a break and grab a drink or something to eat. The open-air area allows the space to be a great hangout spot for your friends to sit and talk.


For the adventurous people check out the WildWorks Ropes Course. This course takes you 34 feet high, where you go through obstacles and over bridges, and you can even zip line back down to the bottom. The WildWorks Ropes Course is an extra $18 fee, but well worth it.


The zoo also offers a behind-the-scenes tour where you get admission into the park and a 20-minute meet and greet with one of your favorite animals. From giraffes to otters to hippos, the tour gives you a little more insight on the animals’ daily lives.


If you’re not up for these different experiences, the zoo still offers so much. Make sure you keep your head on a swivel because with zoo360 you never know where you might see a monkey. Make sure you check out Big Cat Falls. Along the trails, you will see snow leopards, lions, pumas, tigers and many other big cats.

U.S. Beach Towns Still Beautiful in Winter

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

What Not To Buy at the Airport
