Zoo Trip! | Week 15
“Everyone needs a break from their day to day to recharge and get a chance to be away from it all.” – Bryce Ward 8/14/2020
This past week I organized a short trip for my friends and myself to visit the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle Washington. We had a an amazing time at Woodland Park Zoo and I wanted to share with you some tips for planning your trip during the current pandemic.
Buy Your Tickets In Advance
If you are hoping to arrive and purchase tickets at the zoo. You maybe out of luck. To maintain social distancing during their visitors stay the Woodland Park Zoo is currently only allowing customers to enter at select times. This allows the Woodland Park Zoo to limit the number of guests at any one time. For my group we decided to purchase our tickets a few weeks out so that we can make sure to clear our calendars for that day and guarantee that we would be allowed in.
I cannot stress this enough. When ever you are planning on going for a walk during the summer be sure to carry a water bottle with you. In Washington our summers can get well over 90 degrees and in the past I have had people pass out during a short walk because they did not drink enough water.
Overall enjoy yourself! Almost every single section of the zoo was open to the public and we did’nt have a problem with having too many people around. My friends and I had a blast looking for all the different types of animals hiding about. Walking the around the zoo our group took to coming up with new names for animals and got a few laughs out of some the signs we found.
Hey, thank you for reading this week’s post. I had a great time walking the zoo with my friends. It was just what we all needed to recharge and get ready for the week ahead. What do you enjoy doing to recharge and get a breath away from it all? What zoos do you recommend people should visit?
