Get up close and personal with wild and wonderful animals at the Philadelphia Zoo, including Big Cat Crossing -- an extension of Zoo360, the revolutionary, first-in-the-world animal exploration system. The Philadelphia Zoo was America's first such attraction, and today its 42-acre Victorian garden is home to more than 1,300 animals, many rare and endangered. By connecting people with wildlife, the Philadelphia Zoo creates joyful discovery and inspires positive protective action for animals and habitats. Cheetahs, hippos, giraffes (oh my!) and much more make the Zoo one of the country's leading family attractions, with over 1.2 million visitors last year. Your ticket lets you visit anytime during the spring or summer 2015 season.
