Virginia Zoo in Norfolk
Very clean and well laid out zoo. Prices for entry and food/drink were typical for a zoo, but weren't outrageous. Good variety of animals, some viewing areas allowed for fairly close encounters! Was a nice experience with my family.
My tip: go earlier in the day when it's cooler weather, as the animals will be awake and moving about. Went during noontime in hot weather, so the animals were all taking a siesta and were harder to see.
The VA Zoo was fantastic!! There were so many types of wild animals and they had it organized in a really easy to maneuver layout. I especially liked being eye to eye with the giraffes and the animals looked well cared for. The price was a little steep for our price point but if you catch a deal than it was well worth the admission. The train and restaurant were cool too. Loved it!!
I am handicap, my wife and I didn't have to pay, because of my disability. I use an electric wheelchair, getting around to everything was easy. The animals, the food areas, also the bathrooms were very easy to access. The employees are so very nice and helpful. This was a very great experience. We will be back. Very clean, nice, friendly environment. The food was good, and the eating areas were very clean. This was a 10 star experience. Thank you!
The animals are absolutely astounding and beautiful!! The entire park is wonderful. This Zoo is all about conservation and they do such an awesome job with it! The fact about the animals and general area they live in are easy to read and understand for the children. I love this zoo so much!!
Absolutely check out the Norfolk zoo! There are so many cool exhibits to check out and they just opened the new reptile house! I always enjoy going to the zoo and it seems every time I go they have something new. They also do private events and birthday parties!
