Winter Break Escapes # 7 - Jan 1, 2011

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore will be open in January and February for the first time in five years -- and at half off admission prices to boot! Check out the zoo in its wintry glory Fridays through Mondays, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. throughout January and February, starting today, New Year's Day!

While some animals remain indoors and off exhibit until springtime, others, like the leopards and penguins, go in and out all winter long.  And, as you can imagine, the polar bears love our Maryland winters! Each day, the zoo keepers assess weather conditions such as the temperature, wind, and ground slickness to decide whether particular animals will be safe and healthy outdoors. 

Adult admission is $8.00, children ages 2-11 $5.50 and seniors $6.50.  Children under 2 and members are always free!  The Zoo will resume normal operation and ticket pricing on Tuesday, March 1, 2011.
