We are fortunate to have the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk. It is a great place to visit with or without the family. You can check out the animal families there too. The new arrivals (like the recently born Red Panda cubs) are listed on the web site. You can even adopt some of the animals. The Zoodoptions make great birthday or holiday gifts. The Zoo also allows private events and functions.
Some of my favorite animals are the Red Pandas, Masai Giraffes, African Elephants and tiny Blue Duiker.
On September 5, they are offering Zoovies. Beginning at 6:30 p.m., bring the family, spread a blanket under the stars and enjoy the movie Jungle Book at the Zoo. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
Senior Wednesdays. Senior Wednesdays allow seniors ages 62 and over free admission through the month of September.
ZooBoo. Mark your calendar for the ZooBoo on October 25. More information is available online.
