tautphaus-zoo-panorama3Tautphaus Zoo (Pronounced Tut-fass)  is open April 1  through the end of October.  It’s a great little zoo, and is home for over 100 different kinds of animals.  It’s not a huge zoo, but it’s a worthwhile trip, and makes for a good out-of-the-box date or outing with friends.

Admission is $7.25 (for adults) and the zoo is open from 9:00am – 4:00pm most days.
