Home to over 2,000 animals and Indiana's largest aquarium, this 64-acre zoo has lions, elephants and other wild animals roaming through natural settings. A special petting area allows children to touch, but not feed, the tamer animals. There's also the world's largest enclosed dolphin show and a roller-coaster for all ages to enjoy.

We attended Zoo Boo this year and had a wonderful time. The trick or treating is not worth the time for the kids, but the Halloween village was fun and cute. The weather was cool so the animals were out and more active as well.

We take a trip at least once a year to the Indy zoo. We enjoy the nice walk around the various exhibits but we particularly enjoy the dolphin dome and the orangutan exhibits.
