Usually when people think of Cleveland, Rock and Roll is what comes to mind. It’s home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the beautiful glass pyramid on the water, and of course, we have our own Hard Rock Café.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that we are also home to an amazing zoo. The layout is fantastic and we have a lot of fun animals. I think the only thing I’m sad we don’t have, is penguins. Our elephant exhibit is new and absolutely stunning. Anytime you have a chance to visit the Cleveland Zoo, it’s definitely worth your time!
It’s not the first time, and I’m sure they’ll do it again, but at least for this year (2013), they have Dinosaurs about from May 9 – September 15. This was quite the discussion with my son, since he insisted Dinosaurs were at Universal Studios, not zoos.
The dinosaurs they built are absolutely amazing! They move, make noise and apparently can scare a certain 3-year-old girl half to death! Tony ended up having to take her through quickly while Arthur and I lingered and checked them all out.
There are over 20 dinosaurs, from the T-rex to smaller raptor like dinos. They even have a massive pterodactyl. It really puts into perspective how gigantic these things are!
This is another awesome place to visit in the U.S.. The Cleveland area is worth a visit, and when you do make it, don’t forget to stop at the zoo and see the dinosaurs, presented by Dollar Bank with support from Discount Drug Mart.
