A Trip To See Akron Zoo’s Expansion

Dane and I went to the Akron Zoo on the 24th.  We haven’t been there since early this spring.  I had said I wasn’t going back until the expansion was complete so today was the day.  The expansion has been open for over a week and it was a unseasonably cool day, perfect!  Maybe not.  We arrived and the parking lot was full.  The zoo employee at the gate gave us a map and explained that they were parking incoming cars an...

I decided that was definitely something I wanted to have done when we went.  They have a few locations around Magic Kingdom, one on Main Street and one  by the castle on the way to Liberty Square… We had our son’s...
