There is a wonderful zoo for all ages in Tampa at Lowry Park. It isn't too far from the University of South Florida, if you need a break from studying or from paying for that college student of yours if you are the visiting parent and don't wish to spend lots more money by visiting Busch Gardens across the street from the college. There's also a mall near the zoo & park with a decent Regal Cinema inside. This zoo is partway between between the college and the gorgeous Gulf beaches. The zoo is world-class; spend a couple of hours or wile away most of your day at a leisurely pace. Bring your camera because there are 'photo ops' galore, and not just of the critters! This zoo has beauteous shaded and lush grounds that are almost calling your name for you to stand in front of the foliage for that perfect photo!!!
