This week we went to the Santa Fe Teaching Zoo in Gainesville at the Sante Fe College. We went with our homeschool group this week and there were lots of other schools there as well. I honestly was afraid it would be very crowded. I was pleasantly surprised that even though there were several other field trips in there it was nice and spacious. It was also a nice experience because unlike larger zoos you were up closer to some of the animals. The price was very reasonable. It costs $5 for adults and $4 for children. It was a smaller zoo so it was not as huge as others but it had a nice new playground for the children to have fun and a picnic area as well. If you are looking for a nice visit to a close zoo this is a good option. We got to see the otters being trained so that was neat to see how they do that. 

Check out the zoo and if you decide to go let us know how you liked it!

It is beautiful! We go for family day trips here and there! It is a nice little zoo! The Eagle is always a sight to see right there in person!
