Family Adventure – San Francisco Zoo

This past weekend we were able to take a trip up to the city to the San Francisco Zoo and although it wasn’t the best weather it turned out to be a pretty nice way to spend the day..

Since you never really know how the weather is going to go in SF ? I highly suggest to put some layers on so that way if it does get warmer you can always de layer if need be. Once we got inside the Zoo it started to warm up and we didn’t have to wear our jackets anymore till the end of our adventure.

We got their about 1:30pm and the parking lot was full so we parked on the street next to the Zoo which had available parking at no cost *which was nice*.

The park is located right next to the beach and you can even walk across the street and have some snacks or lunch their before you head into the park. Unfortunately the weather was pretty windy and I’m not one for cold wind so we decided to side track that idea and go straight into the Zoo.

We first headed to see the Hippo’s habitat and luckily they were up  taking baths.

You know you’ve watched Madagascar one too many times if those penguins pop up in your head when your at the zoo looking at actually penguins *lol*.

We were wondering why the Rino didn’t have his horn?

Zoo Keeper and Scavenger Bird

One of the Zoo keeper’s had a great talk about scavenger birds.

This eagle lost part of it’s wing and was brought to the zoo when some hiker’s found it on the side of a highway. Luckily now she is used for educational purposes and is recovering well at the Zoo.


This little guy I think was having a moment to himself.

There is a section where you can feed the animals unfortunately we got there to late and we missed out on feeding time.

Our last stop was getting to see the Giraffe’s feeding time.

We got to see about half of the park but it was still a whole day process and we ended up leaving at 5:30pm. Glad we packed extra snacks, warm clothing and the stroller was a must with a toddler and all the walking around. I wish we would have gotten to the Zoo a bit earlier so we could have seen a bit more like the family/kids section were you could feed and interact with the animals but I’m glad we were able to see feeding time with the majority of the animals and at the end of the day everyone went home happy and fulfilled.
