Hands Down, Better Than SF Zoo

Somehow, I just feel better when I see the animals have a little space to roam. At Oakland Zoo, they have plenty! Huge enclosures.

It is consistently warmer in Oakland than San Francisco too, which makes for a more pleasant visit. While seeing tigers in the fog may be more romantic, I prefer to see my tigers at 300 yards, thank you very much!

Now this is a Zoo

One of the best in the country. The real estate is compact enough that you don't have to walk alot to see everything yet expansive enough to have some major attractions (elephants, giraffes, bats, etc.)
The children's zoo is just remarkable, newly remodeled with animal appropriate interactions, toys, and attractions intermingled with the animals. The property is very well kept and designed with African styled buildings and restaurants. Outside, a small carnival like fair features rides, a train, a small roller coaster, and other fun things for kids to do without having to go IN the Zoo.
5 stars!! Okay... so why'd I only give it 4.5? It is still a work in progress and... no lions :(
