Lions, tigers, bears…yes, please! When you’ve got one of the best zoos in the country, it’s hard not to brag about it. And with the stamp of approval from everyone’s favorite khaki-loving animal lover, Jack Hanna, we feel no shame in admitting that we use our Zoo Pass more than our gym membership. Walking through the reptile house is the best form of exercise we can think of, especially with a small cup of Dippin’ Dots at our disposal.
