The zoo has always been such a wonderful place to visit whether you are a toddler who delights in the cute and cuddly or an adult who enjoys the beauty of the animals of our world. The tigers always hold a special place in my heart when visiting the zoo. They are beautiful and majestic and I can take photos of them all day long. Our local zoo “Palm Beach Zoo” is a great zoo with many amazing animals to see and things to do for all ages. Check out the fun events happening this August!
