Treats that won’t break the bank
While instant ramen and spaghetti are quick and affordable, your taste buds crave more. Food trucks located throughout the Zoo offer a variety of snacks at prices even interns can afford. Enjoy a taco platter from Blue Monkey Taco for $12, treat yourself to gourmet popcorn for only $5 at Stella’s Popkern or grab some gelato for $6 from Dolci Gelati to keep full and focused!
Close your rings
The pattern is all too familiar … “I’ll go to the gym tomorrow.” Then, before you know it, a week has gone by. Being cooped up in an office all day can really take a toll on the body, and finding time to exercise is difficult. Built on a hill, the Zoo is an ideal place to work out with animal stops to keep your motivation flowing. The main path, called Olmsted Walk, is 0.8 miles long with numerous branching paths to explore and misting stations to cool off in when it gets hot.
Romance for free: priceless
Planning a date can be tough. Movies are too quiet, and no one can ever agree on a restaurant. Luckily, romance’s middle name is “Zoo.” Explore the Zoo with your new boo or longtime lover for a fun date night! Roam around the secluded underwater viewing area of American Trail or the tropical rainforest paradise of Amazonia for a date night that will have them head over heels. Did we mention it’s free?
