Having 4 children that range in age from 4 – 13 can make it really difficult to find family friendly attractions in Kentucky. Especially ones that ll four kids AND my hubby and I are going to enjoy. And when we aren’t necessarily traveling but want something fun for the entire family, we need something fairly local. Like within a couple hours driving time.

One of our absolute favorite places to visit as a family is the Louisville Zoo. We recently took a trip there and had a ton of fun.

“Since it opened in 1969, the Louisville Zoo has dedicated itself to the pursuits of education, conservation, scientific study and recreation. Accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) in 1980, the “State Zoo of Kentucky” currently exhibits more than 1300 animals on 135 acres of natural settings representing both zoogeographical areas and specific habitat types including: Glacier Run, Gorilla Forest, ISLANDS, the African Veldt, Asian Plains, North and South American Panorama, Australian Outback and HerpAquarium.”

“In 2012, the American Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) awarded its Top Exhibit Award to Glacier Run. This exhibit provides a truly unique experience where one can visit the animals, talk to the keeper about conservation and become temporarily immersed in life on the tundra.”

I have a full blog post over on Blogging Is A Trip  featuring our trip to the Louisville Zoo. So be sure to head over there and check that out. I also have a slideshow below showing you just some of the animals we saw at the Louisville Zoo. It was really hot out that day but we had so much fun seeing all the animals. The Louisville Zoo really is a great family friendly activity in Kentucky!
