If you have a family that loves animals and is willing to walk high and low hills in order to see them, then Los Angeles Zoo & Botanical Gardens is the place to spend a great day.
My children loved seeing all these different animals playing around. Although the zoo itself is not so big, everything is well organised and most of the animals are human friendly, so the do not hide or sleep.
The zoo is close to LA and easily reached by car, the parking is free and you can have some packed lunch from home and sit and enjoy it at the specified picnic areas.
The young volunteers will guide you through everything. They are very kind and helpful.
I loved this zoo it was so fun!
