The Toledo Zoo

South

If you drive through South Toledo, you’ll be surrounded by tree-lined streets, beautiful parks, and bustling golf courses. You’ll notice the unique architecture of homes built in a timeless design. You’ll hear the mighty Maumee River flowing just blocks away. You’ll feel the quiet energy of positivity. And you’ll feel at home.

While you’re here, you’ll definitely want to stop by the world-famous Toledo Zoo & Aquarium. With over 10,000 animals of more than 700 species, the Toledo Zoo earns every bit of its slogan “The Must Do Zoo,” because it is truly an experience you and your family will never forget. Children can feed animals and their imagination with exciting summer courses and camps. If you’re here in the winter, you have to experience Lights Before Christmas––A dazzling display of Christmas lights that was voted the best zoo light display in the USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice contest.

The arts come alive at the 2,400-seat Stranahan Theater & Great Hall, home to the annual Theater League Broadway series, concerts of nationally touring bands and comics and the annual performance of Toledo Ballet’s The Nutcracker.
