Already thinking about how to keep the kids entertained over Christmas break? Here's an idea the whole family will love; take them to the Milwaukee County Zoo for FREE!

I know what you're thinking, what can we do at a zoo in the winter? The answer; plenty!

Milwaukee County Zoo is home to a whole bunch of cold-weather loving animals that are just waiting to meet you. Snow leopards, Snow Lilly the Polar Bear, caribou and elk are just a few of the animals your family can see and all of them are most active during the colder months. Plus, there's a year-round outdoor otter exhibit and plenty of indoor activities to enjoy as well.

Now, for the best part...from Monday, December 24 through Tuesday, January 1, admission is FREE at the Milwaukee County Zoo!

The zoo will be open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to
2:30 p.m., and 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Regular parking and concession fees do apply.

Just a little heads up, I discovered there are more free admission days at coming up at Milwaukee County Zoo in January, February, March, October, November and December 2019. Get more information here so you can plan your next trip to the zoo.
