Voted the #1 Best Zoo in the World by TripAdvisor, the San Diego Zoo is a treasured 100-year old city landmark. The 100-acre area is home to more than 3,500 animals (including rare and endangered) and a prominent botanical collection with more than 700,000 exotic plants. Additionally, it’s one of the few zoos in the entire world that houses and successfully breeds the giant panda! There are many ways to explore everything the Zoo has to offer, whether you’re on foot, a guided bus tour, or on the overhead gondola lift that provides incredible aerial views of the entire park. The Zoo is a wonderful San Diego attraction for the entire family. For more information on how to buy San Diego Zoo tickets, check out our guide.
