I feel lucky to have such a great zoo in Fort Wayne! The zoo is obviously geared more towards children, but the adults enjoy themselves too! It's perfect in the summer time to get a membership and go a couple times a week. Gets the little ones outside and gives them something to do. And if you plan on going a lot, the membership is definitely the way to go! Saves you a TON of money! The zoo has a wide variety of animals and different points of interest.

Took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day. We loved it! Such a nice place to spend a few hours in the middle of winter. The paths were nice and clean, most of the plants were marked with a name and where they can be found in the world. The back walls could use some color, but other than that, no complaints! My girlfriend loved this place so much that we actually returned the next day and walked around for a couple more hours before heading back home!

This is a great place to go no matter what age you are but it is especially good for small children but adults can go also for a good time there is always plenty to learn. If you go you have to try the high wire bike it's pretty cool how it all works. Also for adults it's just neat to go into this old building in downtown Fort Wayne and look at the inside structure how the building construction is. I would suggest for all people with kids or without just go have fun.
