Located north of downtown Tampa, this 56-acre, natural habitat zoological park has African animals, Florida wildlife, manatee center, primates, Asian animals, free-flight aviary, Stingray Bay and an Australian-themed children's zoo. The zoo in recent years has added more theme park-like rides, with a Gator Falls log flume ride and Treetop Skyfari aerial ride. The sprayground in the front of the zoo is a summertime favorite for kids.

The zoo also offers a variety of ongoing classes, camps and workshops. And it has a popular Parents Night Out program that lets you park the kids there while to head out on a date. It's WaZoo and Zoofari fund-raisers are some of Tampa bay's most popular events.

Adult and child guests can "pay for a day" and return to the zoo as many times as they choose until Dec. 31, 2016.
