Open year-round, the Philadelphia Zoo always has something fascinating to discover.
The PECO Primate Reserve offers a chance to view gorillas, orangutans, lemurs, and other primates swinging around their habitat! And, the Reptile and Amphibian House is home to a large collection of snakes and crocodiles. Make your way to the McNeil Avian Center to observe foreign birds in an interactive rainforest-type environment. Add a little extra to your visit by renting a swan boat or take a ride on the Amazon Rainforest Carousel. With over 15 incredible animal exhibits spread out over 42 acres, the Philadelphia Zoo is a welcoming respite from the concrete grandeur of the city.
