An Affordable day with the Family-The Minnesota Zoo

OK~ It's summertime and it's time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. We all know that kids of all ages absolutely love the zoo. The Minnesota Zoo, in Apple Valley, Minnesota, is no exception!  Here you can find a handy dandy map on how to get to The Minnesota Zoo. The signage along the way is very visible and the zoo itself is easy to find. Follow the signs and you will have no problem. If you have spent any time at the Mall of America, just head 10 minutes South on HWY 77 and you will find yourself at The Minnesota Zoo!

One of the most affordable ways to spend time at The Minnesota Zoo is to purchase a membership. This not only gives you admission to this zoo, but more than 90 zoos across the United States! This is a great way to plan a family vacation...If you are heading to the Omaha area, or traveling through...No problem, you can visit this zoo for FREE (call ahead to verify your benefits), because you have opted to purchase a zoo membership!

A zoo membership for your household will cost you $110 for one whole year. This includes a maximum of two adults residing at the same address and your dependent children 18 and under. Now, talk about value! Should you choose to bring a free guest with you each zoo visit, the annual cost is $130. Now, I was really impressed that a Grandparent membership is now available~ this just goes to show that zoos are welcoming families of all types. Grandparents play a major role in the lives of their grandchildren, and what better way to spend time~ Head to a zoo~ The Minnesota Zoo is a great place for grandparents to spend a day with their grandchildren. Oh, and the signage in the actual Minnesota Zoo itself is awesome.....

If you choose to purchase a one day visit at the zoo~ a family of four will be a total of $65.00 (tickets and parking). Kids 2 and Under are FREE! Remember that an annual pass for a family of four is $110- this is where it's important to consider if you will be coming back within the next 12 months (or even visit another zoo in the United States).

I can personally attest to the fact that teens and grandparents can even enjoy the zoo.

On our visit to the Minnesota Zoo, it was myself, my Mom, and my two boys, who are 16 and 20. And my 16 year old is still working on a smile now and then. This Mom is slowly working on that! We had an awesome day~The exhibits were educational, entertaining, and fun! Many exhibits at The Minnesota Zoo are indoors, so even on a cold, winter day~ it's a great place to spend time with your family. The Minnesota Zoo~ an affordable day for you and your family. We loved the zoo and will definitely go back! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

This is the 3rd of 3 Posts......A fun zoo to visit with the family!
