Plan a family-friendly adventure to The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs any day of the year. It is undeniably estimated to offer one of the best zoo experiences in the country featuring over 700 animals. The park houses one of the largest reticulated giraffe herds in the world as well. Guests can hand-feed a giraffe during their visit, which is a much-loved experience for those that tour the park.

From the up-close-and-personal animal interactions to the zoo carousel ride, a half-day trip can provide hours of entertainment and education. Being a mountain zoo, the zoo also showcases stunning views of the city. The Mountaineer Sky Ride offers the perfect opportunity to take in the spectacular views of the zoo, mountains, and plains surrounding Colorado Springs.

You can stay at the nearby Broadmoor Resort for a luxury destination vacation and include the zoo on your to-do list of Colorado Springs. If you live locally, you can make a day of it! Tour the park, shop in the gift store, bring a cooler of snacks with your family for a picnic table experience or visit one of the excellent restaurants in the zoo for everything from espresso to stone-fired pizza or burgers. A visit to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is an affordable outing for the entire family, any time of the year!
