If you have read this blog long you know I am a huge fan of the Knoxville Zoo. We get a yearly family pass, it is affordable and allows us to take the boys often. If you do not have a Zoo membership Penguin Discount Days are a great chance to visit the Knoxville Zoo.
Many of the zoo’s animals enjoy the crisp weather and are more active on cooler days. The zoo’s favorite indoor exhibit, Wee Play Zoo, is a cozy place to stop and play if you do happen to get a little chilly. And on days when the temperature drops below 40 degrees, some animals will be moved to their indoor enclosures, but even on the coldest days of the year visitors can still see elephants, gorillas, penguins, reptiles, and bears in their indoor viewing areas.
Half-price admission tickets can be purchased at the zoo ticket office during regular zoo hours. Tickets can also be purchased at all Knoxville area Kroger stores and online at www.knoxvillezoo.org. Discounted admission tickets must be used by Feb. 29, 2012, and cannot be combined with any other promotion, discount, or coupon.
