'Columbus' love

When someone questioned the Columbus Zoo outranking the San Diego Zoo, one of the authors of The Top 10 Zoos in America wrote on USA Travel Guide's website that...

Columbus can’t compete with San Diego in sheer variety or even in quality of facilities on many points, this is something that team Columbus would concede, but on the other side, it was agreed (almost) universally that the Columbus Zoo just had a vibe about it. A sense of love, a sense of personality, a sense of realism. How it came down eventually was, “My brain says San Diego, but my heart says Columbus.” We finally went with our hearts.

I couldn't agree more - the Columbus Zoo sure does have a lot of heart!


  1. Congratulations! I loved your zoo when I lived in Columbus! I have many find memories from there. You all should be very proud!
