A zoo is the first place most people would go to see a leopard, whereas the second place would be the chainlink enclosure in Donald Sutherland's backyard. Steer clear of Donald Sutherland with this Groupon.

Zoo Atlanta

Zoo Atlanta set up shop in 1889 after a traveling circus rolled into town and stayed indefinitely. Financial hardships had driven the circus owner bankrupt, leaving a flood of out-of-work circus performers and animals without anywhere to go. With the help of concerned citizen G.V. Gress–who believed Atlanta needed a zoo–the city adopted the animals and converted a part of Grant Park into what is now Zoo Atlanta.

Since those early days, many animals have found their home at Zoo Atlanta, from giant pandas to the nation’s largest zoological collections of gorillas and orangutans, to elephants, rhinos, lions, tigers and more. All in all, more than 1,500 animals currently roar and romp in their respective enclosures, meeting up once a night to dish over visitors’ summer outfits.

A typical journey through the Zoo begins at Flamingo Plaza, from which visitors can choose one of two paths: They either take the left path and come face to face with elephants, warthogs, and lions, or they can choose the right and find themselves amid a flurry of exotic birds and excited children at the KIDZone playground. Visitors can walk at their own pace and follow their own path, still watching otters play, orangutans swing through trees, and pandas pretend like they don’t care people are watching them sleep.

Financial hardships had driven the circus owner bankrupt, leaving a flood of out-of-work circus performers and animals without anywhere to go. With the help of a generous Atlanta businessman, the animals were purchased at an auction and donated to the city. Atlanta converted that early zoo, located in Grant Park, into what is now Zoo Atlanta.

Since those early days, many animals have found their home at Zoo Atlanta, from elephants and tigers to gorillas and zebras. All in all, nearly 1,400 animals currently roar and romp in their respective habitats, meeting up once a night to dish over visitors’ summer outfits.

Best zoo in the southeast ... Very clean, lots of shade to escape the summer sun.

Carl Holt, Google+ Local, a year ago

The exhibits and animals were fantastic.
