The Birmingham Zoo is a great, little zoo for families! We especially love all of its interactive elements, including feeding the lorikeets — they’ll perch right on your arm — and watching lion and tiger feedings. Other highlights include pirate train rides, seasonal festivals and animal shows; the sea lion show is not to be missed!
Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors (65+) and 11 for kids age 2 to 12.
It’s open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends.
