The cost ($28) for general entrance, $2.99 for a small bottle of water and $6.99 for a basic hamburger is too expensive for a few hours of wandering around a park with less than adequate signage and only a few actual "rare" animals. They had much more fun interactivity back in the late 1980's - maybe they should consider their audience when making changes to the park. I came across more than a few older folks that looked like they were about to have a heart attack from walking in circles unable to understand the signs. I'd go to Sea World if I were you.

The San Diego Zoo is constantly being renewed with special exhibits and programs. Different kinds of programs are offered throughout the year. Last week my wife and I enjoyed a "Sunrise Surprise Stroll". It was a guided walk, 7:30-9:00am, giving us adults an up-close, behind the scenes look before the zoo opened to the public. We were a group of about 30 people with a very enjoyable funny guide who knew the Zoo inside out. We went to two locations and talked to the keeper at each. I have been going to the Zoo for years but this really was fun and opened a whole new dimension. The keepers are highly trained professions with years of experience and love their job. If you are interested in this guided tour act quickly because those 30 openings fill up fast. Tell them CitySearch sent you.

Did you know that the plant collection at the zoo is actually more valuable than the animals? Check out the web logs by the zoo's horticulturists, arborists, and gardeners.

I've been a member of the zoo for many years. It's one of the best bargains in San Diego. You get free admission for a whole year and many others things. My wife and I go just when the zoo opens, walk for about 4 hours and then leave for some other activities. A membership is a very enjoyable way to start a Saturday. www.sandiegozoo.o...

Oh, and by the way, TripAdvisor just voted our "San Diego Zoo" as the #10 U.S. tourist attraction. (Sure, I know! Why not #1?) It's in good company: Orlando, Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas, Hana Highway Maui, Grand Canyon, Central Park, Alcatraz, Top of the Rock Observation Deck NY, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Bellagio Fountains Las Vegas.

It's extremely difficult if not entirely impossible to see everything here in a day. Their penguin exhibit was really cool, and it's neat to see the polar bears swim. There's alot of walking so you should wear really comfy shoes.

This a wonderful zoo. I love watching the polar bears swimming around their tank. The reptile house was a bit nerve racking for me because I really don't like snakes, but they had a wide variety of species. I really love to go watch the elephants and the giraffes. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The zoo is so large that it is difficult to see all of it in one day. The food is a bit overpriced.

I used to live in San Diego, so going to the Zoo is one of my favorite childhood memories. This is by far the biggest, cleanest zoo in the States with the most animals. There's so much to see and so much to do. After seeing and playing with all the animals, you can walk through the rain forests, take a bus tour, ride the sky ride, it really is a lot of fun. There's a lot of good food, and gift shops. Visit the gift store right by the entrance if you like jelly beans, they have a variety of about 40 flavors you can mix and match for yourself. The San Diego Zoo is worth every cent!

This zoo has set the standard for zoos the world over. Nothing compares to the landscaping, enclosures and the variety of species. Bird and mammal shows are entertaining and educational. It's impossible to see everything in one day, but it's money well spent. Besides giving visitors an eye and earful, the behind-the-scenes research and conservation efforts are most impressive. The location in Balboa Park, lends to a great opportunity to spend a full day at the zoo and then head to the Gas Lamp District downtown for a nice meal before heading home.
