We received a complimentary day out at Brookfield Zoo. All opinions expressed are our own.
It’s no secret that we LOVE Brookfield Zoo. With two January birthdays, we almost always ask for a membership for the boys’ birthdays. We’ve attended Brunch with Santa in the past, visited on super warm March days, and found time to escape there in the winter when the grounds are bare and the exhibits have virtually no lines. This past visit was no different.Some of our favorites include Stingray Bay, the Hamill Family Play Zoo, the Living Coast (YAY PENGUINS!), Seven Seas and the Butterflies. #BZBloggers
I love that he will still hold hands with me.
A little time at the Hamill Family Play Zoo where kids can create, be kids, and learn more about the animals they love
Go to the fountain. Go to the sign. Take a picture. All the cool kids do it.
Let the kids run around at one of the many parks located within the zoo. Our boys love making a pitstop there every time we go.
Up close animal experiences, like Stingray Bay. The boys loved the opportunity to feed these critters and try to reach them. It’s fascinating to see all of them swimming around – in all the years we’ve visited the Zoo, this was our first visit to the Bay and the boys LOVED it!
Meeting & Petting animal friends
Bring an extra set of clothes. Just do it. You’ll thank me.
A successful visit to the Zoo means napping kiddos. You’re welcome.
Visiting Brookfield Zoo is one of our favorite yearly activities. We go several times throughout the year, visit with friends, take classes, go as a family, and meet friends on playdates. If you’re considering a membership, buy one like yesterday. Within the first visit or two, you make back your money and more. They have membership plans for all budgets and each level includes basic zoo admission and parking. We absolutely LOVE spending time there.
What’s your favorite exhibit at Brookfield Zoo?
I haven’t been to the Brookfield zoo in a couple years( I don’t live in the area anymore), but I always enjoyed getting to visit with my best friend and her niece. My favorite exhibit last time I went was the polar bears because they had just had a cub and it was so cute trying to follow it’s mother around.
