Dinosaurs. Real Close And Nearly Alive In Seattle!

May 15, 2011 by · 1 Comment 


Seattle has many wonderful destinations for  children. There are waterfront parks, a wooden boat center, dozens of playgrounds, a fabulous market, and many healthy kid friendly restaurants.

If you find yourself traveling through the Emerald City this summer, seriously consider a trip to the city’s Woodland Park Zoo. I visit this zoo often with my youngest son, and we absolutely love strolling through the zoo and exploring all the animals. Some  of our favorite spots are the Family Farm and the Raptor Center.  Both offer great opportunities for learning because there are usually zoo educators or volunteers  in the area who are willing to answer lots of questions and share their knowledge.  There is one temporary exhibit right now that looks super cool. It’s the “Dinosaurs. Real Close.” exhibit and it will run through September 5. I haven’t been to the animatronic exhibit of enormous North American species of  dinosaurs just yet, but my son and I saw the exhibit being installed a few weeks ago. The massive dinosaurs bring new meaning to interactive  learning because they roar, howl, hiss and even spit!

For additional information on the exhibit and the zoo in general, be sure to check out their website and blog.  Also, take note that the zoo has RV parking!
