More from TN
On our last day in Tennessee we met T's family and spent a full morning and afternoon at the Knoxville Zoo. We were happy to see everyone again, and Seamus had a lot fun playing with his cousins.
We've been to a lot of zoos, but the Knoxville Zoo still remains our favorite, surpassing Turtle Back Zoo and the Central Park Zoo (however that may change since we've yet to visit the Bronx Zoo). Knoxville's zoo is fairly large with exotic animals like an albino alligator and classic zoo animals like lions, elephants, giraffes and rhinos.
The exhibits are well-designed and there's lots of hands-on stuff for little ones, plenty of tree shade and a water misting system that runs throughout the zoo to keep everyone cool.
S loved playing the mist, and was soaking wet for most of the day.
