I like to go to zoos and where I live there is a zoo nearby. This zoo has a garden, a kids water playground, and a new sea lion exhibit. The sea lion can be seen up close and personal. The Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, South Carolina is a very nice local zoo, and has a little for everybody. The zoo is separated into two parts. One side is the Garden area the other the zoo area. I like to recommend the new sea lion exhibit as a must during the summer months. The seal enclosure is a nice place to cool down after you tour the zoo on a hot day. All the animals have enough room and look well taken care of.

Happy Sea Lions and Seals

 

After a long walk around I went to the garden area using a small jungle shuttle. I took many nice pictures in the waterfall area. This area looks like an ideal location for wedding settings, or a nice family gathering. The garden area also has an indoor area setup just for this.

After my picture taking I took the shuttle back over to the zoo area walked over to the elephants and took more pictures. I also liked their penguin exhibit. If you don’t mind a few snakes, spiders and bats the reptile exhibit area is cool.

In all this zoo seems to get over looked with the other zoo’s in the area. The Atlanta Zoo is about a three hour ride in the other direction and another one in Asheboro, North Carolina. Riverbanks Zoo is what I would consider my local zoo. I support my local business and took a trip to the zoo in Columbia.

    What a lovely Zoo! Very pretty waterfalls and that elephant is so cute! I went to a zoo last month in Edinburgh and wrote a blog post on it, I’d be grateful if you’d check it out? https://gingersnappsblog.wordpress.com/2017/07/05/edinburgh-zoo-trip/
