Field Trip Fridays

A couple weeks ago, my husband and I decided to take our boys to the zoo!  Hubby took a Friday off and we decided to visit Chattanooga for the day and the Chattanooga zoo! Since we've been to Zoo Atlanta so many times, we thought a change would be nice.

While I love Zoo Atlanta, and think it has tons of great attractions and animals, its simply too busy. We've gone on weekdays and waited to see animals and gotten shoved around. It just wasn't the experience we wanted this time around, so we decided to try another zoo. Let me just say we LOVED this zoo. While smaller, it was so nice not having to fight through crowds and end up not seeing the animal shows after arriving 30 minutes ahead of time! It doesn't have the bigger animals, and all the bells and whistles of a bigger zoo, but its just peaceful. No worries of loosing your 3 year old in a crowd either, which was a huge plus for us!

They have a nice large park next door, and lush green grasses to picnic on. They also have a carousel at the front of the park and its all really reasonably priced. My family will definitely be visiting this zoo again! If you are ever in the Chattanooga area and looking for a great family day out for a cheap price, I highly recommend this zoo.
