Popular with locals, Family-friendly

The 58 acres of this uptown zoo make for a full afternoon. The zoo dates back to the 1930s, but its most recent major renovation was in the 1980s. It's more of an open space than compendium of small cages, and the animals mostly inhabit landscaped paddocks that replicate their natural habitats. If you don't have time to take a day trip from the city, the Louisiana Swamp exhibit lets you see the alligators you might otherwise have missed. There's a Reptile Encounter area with snakes and a rare komodo dragon, as well as the very popular orangutan and elephant habitats.
