What Is It
The sprawling Cincinnati Zoo is the nation’s second-oldest zoo, and this iconic Cincy attraction makes for a great day trip with or without kids. Don’t miss the daily encounters with polar bears and lions or the morning elephant baths.
No Cincinnati Zoo visit would be complete without saying hi to Fiona, the star hippo, who became the smallest hippo ever to survive after a premature birth. You can visit the not-so-pint-sized-anymore international phenomenon at the zoo’s Hippo Cove every day.
