One of the first weeks we were here in Columbus we took a trip to the Columbus Zoo and got our memberships for the year. It is one of the top zoos in the nation. We will be going back many times for sure. We were there all day and still didn't even see everything. The kids loved the petting zoo, the train and the dinosaur boat ride. We also liked the crazy monkeys that climbed all over the walls, and the vampire bats. Those things are pretty creepy!
