1 Safari Place, Baltimore , MD
Join us for a day at the zoo, and bring the whole family! The Maryland zoo is home to nearly 200 species, including giraffes (that you can feed), elephants, Polar Bear, Chimpanzees and the African Penguins. In my experience, your best chance to see the Polar Bear is going to that exhibit first, but feel free to split up during the day and explore at your own pace.
You can find more info here on what animal the zoo is home for: http://www.marylandzoo.org/
We are going to meet at the front entrance of the zoo. Tickets are on sale for the month of Feb- just $10 (2 and up). You can purchase the tickets at the gate or online. (Even if the event is rescheduled tickets bought online are valid for a year after purchase.)
As of now the weather is looking like 54 and mostly sunny. I'll be keeping a close eye on it as the date gets closer. The zoo does allow for outside food to be brought in, so feel free to pack a lunch, or buy food there.
We can arrange a carpool as well to save on gas. Parking at the zoo is free! It is really easy to find. I included the directions from the zoo website below, but basically hop on 83S and stay there following signs for Baltimore and then exit when you see the sign for the zoo.
