Venture to the Trails of Africa
Birmingham Zoo is the city zoo in Birmingham, Alabama and, despite not being as famous as other zoos around the country, has some excellent exhibits and makes for a fun day out with the kids. In fact, the Birmingham Zoo is so popular that it's been ranked as one of the most popular attractions in the entire state for many years running.
The Zoo has standard exhibits like the predator, reptile, aviary, and primate zones, but it also recently added an exhibit called Trails of Africa which showcases a small herd of African elephants and even lets you gt up close and personal with giraffes. Seeing the massive creatures up close is definitely the highlight of the Zoo. I'd also like to make a special mention of the shows and activities. They have regular sea lion and bird shows and you can take the kids on camel rides during the spring and summer.
