One of our favorite day trips is the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island. If you are a Museum of Science member, admission to this zoo is free!
The animals come right up close to eat. It's amazing to watch them eat their meals.
We were really able to study the stripes on this zebra.
The zoo also has a huge natural playground that inspires children to be creative in their play. If your children love these types of playgrounds, check out our earlier post on natural playgrounds.
One last tip, bring your bathing suits because there is a water element as well. Enjoy!
