Troubadourable folk buddies Simon and Garfunkel once sang that "it's all happening at the zoo" before retiring from music to live out their days serenely basking in the reptile habitat. Get happening with today's Groupon: for $7, you get two admissions to the Utica Zoo (up to a $15.50 value). The Utica Zoo is open daily starting at 10 a.m., and admission is free for children ages 3 and younger.

Approximately 60,000 animal enthusiasts per year visit the Utica Zoo to peruse exhibits and conservations housing more than 200 creatures from around the globe. The walking trails wind around habitats designed for year-round exhibition, allowing all ages of zoologists-for-a-day to marvel at the majestic movements of the African lion, contemplate the powerful jaws of the alligator, and politely commend the bald eagle on his new toupee. A promenade around the North Trek Trail brings wanderers into close proximity with hyenas and zebras, and anthropoids of various species monkey around in the primate building. Though this Groupon is valid only for general admission, the zoo also offers educational programs for children and families and presents the community with fun events such as the Halloween-themed Spooktacular, which features pumpkin carving, a hayride, and the annual ostrich-versus-vampire boxing match.

Utica Zoo

When Utica Zoo opened its gates 98 years ago, three fallow deer comprised its entire animal population. Today, visitors can traipse the zoo's walking trails to view more than 200 animals, including alligators, bald eagles, zebras, and an African lion. The zoo also provides a safe haven for threatened species such as snowy owls and mexican spider monkeys. Staff members guide tours and conduct presentations, allowing visitors to get a close look at animals.

Customer Reviews

Give the first monkeys on the right some greenery or trees in their pen. They looked very unhappy. Otherwise, we enjoyed the day. Thanks!
