Every second Tuesday of the month is discounted admission at the Washington Park Zoo. We will be off to the zoo on Tuesday because the elephants have a new addition to the family and we are hoping to catch a glimpse of the yet to be named baby elephant.
Zoo lights is also going on at the Zoo right now which runs through December 31st. Zoo lights starts at 5:00 PM. Unfortunately, the $4 admission only applies if you enter the park at by 4:00 PM so if you want to see the lights but arrive after 4:00 PM you will need to pay full admission. For the full experience I suggest riding the train which will take you out to the International Rose Garden, although there are no roses right now you will see some good views of the city.
