As you may have already noticed there is more to do in Maryland than anyone has time for. However, if you are staying in the state or are on a tight budget or simply hate paying for attractions we have the ultimate destination in store for you! Salisbury Zoo is one of the state’s greatest free attractions and should not be missed. Sit back and let us take you on a tour of this incredible wonderland!
As many people drive up to the zoo, they are surprised not to find an admission booth of any kind. While the zoo does not charge an admission they will gladly accept any donation you see fair. Keep in mind that these animals need to be fed daily and a McDonald’s value meal simply is not going to cut the bill with these guys! In addition, it is a large park and there is a lot of upkeep to keep it looking as beautiful as it is.
Once inside you are going to be amazed at the amount of animals that are kept in here. Spend your time admiring peacocks and flamingos. Or head over and see if you can get a llama to spit in your face, the kids will love it! In fact, it is quite easy to spend hours or the entire day gazing at the number of exotic animals here in Maryland’s finest free zoo.
Unlike many other free zoos, Salisbury makes the point to ensure that this is going to be a learning experience for the kids and adults as well. There are plenty of experienced zookeepers who are on hand to explain common misunderstandings about some of the animals on hand as well as answer any of your questions. Being able to learn and have a great time is one of the best combinations possible!
In addition to the incredible animals, Salisbury Zoo offers so much more to their visitors. They have a camping facility as well as regular runs through the park. Imagine being able to camp with lions, tigers, and bears…oh my!
Salisbury Zoo is a free attraction but it is going to give you and your family great memories and provide a rich experience. While you are in Maryland, be sure to set aside some time for this fun and exciting experience!
