I grew up just outside of Washington, DC. I was absolutely spoiled with the free Smithsonian museums, the National Zoo and other amazing attractions in the District. Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo holds its own against the bigger zoos, though. It is worth the price of admission any day.
With the 20th Anniversary of the zoo happening this year, you can get the best deal I have seen so far for admission. On the 20th of select months the admission fee is only $20 for two tickets (ages 3 and older). Plus, there are $2 ride and food specials. If you consider that the full price of an adult admission is $18.95, you will have to admit this is a super deal.
