Are you traveling with children to the Columbus, Ohio, area? If so, you’ll want to add the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium to the top of your to-do list! The zoo has grown immensely since its opening in 1927, when it only had a small collection of animals thanks to a donation. With more than 10,000 animals to visit, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium offers a full day of fun to guests. The zoo has six different regions to explore, so you’ll learn a little about each different area of the world and the animals that come from there. The regions represented at the zoo are:

  • North America
  • Heart of Africa
  • Australia and he Islands
  • Shores
  • Congo Expedition
  • Asia Quest

What sets this zoo apart from others is its aquarium. While other zoos may have small exhibits for sea creatures, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium features an impressive 100,000 gallon salt water aquarium. For a separate admission price, guests can also check out Zoombezi Bay, the zoo’s own waterpark.

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has different hours of operation depending on what time of the year it is, so be sure to check their website here before going. Daily tickets, memberships, special events tickets, and tours are also available.

After a fun day at the zoo, you and your family can return to Sonesta ES Suites Dublin Columbus for a little rest and relaxation.
