This is post is sponsored by the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. I received free passes to attend the zoo so that I could tell you all about it!
I honestly and truly love animals so going to the zoo is a lot of fun. I was traveling to Cincinnati for work recently and was so excited to have an offer to visit the zoo before I left town. I had never been there but heard that they had red pandas and gorgeous gardens!
While I was following my GPS to get through the city I could not figure out how there was suddenly going to be an entire zoo tucked inside the houses and buildings in the condensed downtown city. But then I came around a corner and there it was! There were a lot of staff members helping when I was there trying to navigate parking.
A LOT of congestion with traffic trying to get around and out if the parking lot, but inside the zoo it did not seem overcrowded at all. I was off the see the red pandas!
Right upon walking in there was a beautiful peacock with its tail fanned out beautifully. It was as if he was trained to stand there at the entrance turning in circles for all to see his splendid beauty.
There were so many flower beds and planters around the zoo that make it a breathtaking botanical garden experience.
The animals for the most part had great exhibits and habitats to make them feel comfortable. The zoo was impeccably clean and well cared for. You can tell that they care about their animals.
There were many friendly and informative staff members there to help you learn more and let you interact with animals. I got to see some pretty amazing things like pigs out on a walk, a cockatoo eating a papaya and I got to touch a cool lizard. This is fun for young and old alike!

What a lovely place to visit! I would love to get there someday to check it out.
I definitely want to visit Cincinnati soon. I’m in the Chicago area so there’s really no excuse why I haven’t been yet!
I have been to a lot of zoos but never to the the Cincinnati Zoo. Looks like you could spend all day there.

Looks like a great zoo. Of course I love the peacocks, they are such gorgeous animals.
I’ve never been to or even almost crossed near Cincinnati. I’d love to visit. These pictures are beautiful.
What a beautiful place:) Looking at your pictures it did not seem like they were caged animals but yet that they were allowed to roam. Some zoos I have visited just seem so unnatural and uncomfortable for the animals there. Looks like a fun place to visit:)
Wow looks like a blast! I love zoos. Could walk around then over and over again for days. I’ve heard so many good things about the Cincinnati zoo!
I love zoos with a passion, this is something I’d love to do!
I love the zoo. Being surrounded by nature and animals is very enjoyable to me.
Amazing. Looks like such a great trip. Zoos are so much fun. The selection of animals must be amazing.
The Brookfield Zoo is pretty cool too!! I live near Chicago and love that zoo 🙂

What beautiful pictures! I’d love to visit next time I’m in the area.
We have a zoo and botanical gardens in our borough too. They are perfect places for spending quality time with the family.
I’ve never been to Cincinnati but if I do go I would love to visit here. Every time I visit someplace new I always try and visit their zoo.
I love the zoo! I love peacocks. I need to go to a zoo
I have never been to Cincinnati, so thank you for taking us on a tour of the zoo and gardens. The pictures are beautiful!
What a beautiful zoo! I wish I was closer.
That is such a great zoo! The last time we went, the peacock hopped up on the picnic tables and started scoping out what we were all having for lunch!
This looks like a great zoo to visit. My daughter would love to see those cute animals
You got some wonderful pics! A trip to the zoo is on our summer list!
You got some great open feather peacock pictures. I’ve never gotten one where they were all spread out and open so pretty.
I always love visiting Botanical Gardens with my kids, as it could be so much of fun as well as give some wonderful learning experience for them. The Cincinnati Zoo & Gardens looks amazing. I love that cure Panda & that beautiful peacock. Would love to take my kids there.
Oh wow! I know the kids had fun at the zoo, I’d love to go to Cincinnati’s!
I have friends and family in Cincinnati that are going to love this information! I’m emailing them this link. 🙂 PS. I showed my daughter this post because she did a project on the red panda. We are big Red Panda fans here. 🙂
That is so sweet! I didnt know much about red pandas before I went, I wish I could learn more from her report!
