The San Diego Zoo really is awesome. I'd always known it was one of the best zoos in the country, and it lived up to the hype. (Really, the only thing I was a little meh about was the gondolas - the Sky Train, or something like that, for a proper name - you can't go both ways, and the line on the entrance side is way longer than the other side, so you have to walk back to where you were, and it's a big place).
We could have easily spent more time here than we did, but we were staying out of town, and we were with my niece, who is an amazing trooper, but is also still just four. (She loved everything, up the exact instance when she didn't anymore. Awesome kid.)
