“I wish I could live here.”
This was my 10-year-old’s statement as we walked through the final exhibit before heading to the buses. I think we can say this field trip was pretty high on his favorites list!
Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo is already an amazing place, from the gorgeous animals and fun rides to the yummy food and awesome gift shops, but then you add their Dinos Alive exhibit, and you have some VERY happy fifth graders!
My group of kiddos actually walked through Dinos Alive twice because they loved it so much. OK, I was really impressed too–and didn’t even mind getting spit on by one of the dinosaurs. Nice touch, Lowry Park Zoo.

You can’t go wrong by wandering through every exhibit or grabbing a map and planning your day. Whichever style works for your family, go with it.
I just have a few tips to share that might make the day go smoother:
I hope you have a chance to visit this incredible zoo with your family. Not only is it a fun place to view some beautiful creatures, they have several green initiatives and conservation projects that help our earth and our animals … and that makes my heart happy.
Love (and roar like a dino) more,
