Whether you’re visiting New York or you’re a native New Yorker, the Bronx Zoo is one of the most exciting and popular destinations. Most tourists see the major landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building but skip gems like the Bronx Zoo. Also, many native New Yorkers haven’t ventured out of their own borough and have missed this amazing experience. Don’t make these mistakes! This summer, your friends at Empire Rent A Car will help you find the right car to get you to the zoo for your day of fun and adventure.

See the Attractions
Local expert, Sonia Gonzalez, describes several of the zoo’s highlights on her website www.mommypoppins.com. While there are hundreds of fantastic exhibits, she recommends the following must-see attractions:
- The Congo Gorilla Forest: See each gorilla’s unique personality and their fascinating interactions.
- Tiger Mountain: See the beautiful animals communicate with “chuffles”, growls, or even roars.
- The Children’s Zoo: A 3-acre area of the zoo built specifically for the littlest animal lovers where kids can pet and feed farm animals, climb into a bird’s nest, burrow like a prairie dog, and more!
- Treetop Adventure: Add some excitement to your visit with a 400-foot zip line, aerial ropes course, and climbing feature.
