Maryland Zoo in Baltimore

The Maryland Zoo was created in 1876, making it the 3rd oldest zoo in the country, behind only Philadelphia (1873) and Cincinatti (1874). Featuring more than 130 species across 135 acres in Druid Hill Park, visitors will be inspired and educated by the diverse collection of birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles.

Award-winning renovations have led to the creation of some amazing native habitats including the Penguin Coast, Polar Bear Watch, Maryland Wilderness, and African Journey featuring lions, giraffes, and elephants.
