For centuries, the only way to see a polar bear and a giraffe on the same day was to ride a saddled giraffe all the way to the Arctic Circle. Witness how these climatological opposites can coexist and hopefully team up to raise each other's babies with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a family four-pack of admissions (a $10 value per adult, a $7 value per child), a pedal-boat ride for four (a $14 value), and four horse rides (a $5 value each) at the Montgomery Zoo in Montgomery, AL (up to a $74 total value).
The Montgomery Zoo houses more than 500 animals from five continents, including endangered species such as the Indian rhino, the slender-horned gazelle, and the jaguar. Explore more than 40 acres of landscaped, barrier-free habitats chock full of elephants and monkeys, and stop to feed otters, koi, and giraffes, who happily lap up treats from visitors as part of the zoo's Animal Encounters feature ($0.50–$2.00 for feed, not included in the Groupon). The aviary features birds flying about uncaged, taking instructions from loud-mouthed children, and the pedal-boat ride provides a 30-minute float on Crystal Lake.
