Time Out says

The L.A. Zoo’s greatest asset is its location in the isolated hills of Griffith Park. It’s a pretty popular place, but the zoo’s size—80 acres, plus a huge parking lot—means that it rarely feels busy. If you want to visit, it’s worth bearing in mind that some of the larger animals may seek shady refuge from the extreme heat on warm summer days, and by no means will all of them be visible. Though the fauna is the main attraction, don’t miss out on the flora: There’s not a separate botanical garden area here, but you will find over 800 different plant species, from native succulents to prehistoric cycads, labeled and catalogued throughout the zoo’s continentally-themed habitats.

Brew at the L.A. Zoo

  • Quirky events

Amidst sounds of snoozing lions, cackling monkeys and exotic birds, cozy up to 45-plus craft brews at the L.A. Zoo’s annual beer-centric bash. Opening the gates after hours from 7 to 11pm, this historical landmark boasts a night filled with live bands, DJ sets, pub-style grub for purchase, close-up animal encounters and more beer than you can imagine (a four-ounce cup and samples are included). Throw back a cinnamon-dusted churro and dance through the exhibits at this 21-plus event. Chances are, you’ve never seen the L.A. Zoo quite like this.
