In trying to find a place to go my sister-in-law, Robyn, came accross a 50% off deal for the Wild Animal Park in (close to) San Diego. Being the super saver discount coupon maven that she is timed our visit to children enter free month.
The thing that struck us the most about the Wild Animal Park was that there really were not that many people there. Part of that could be do the fact that we went on a rainy day, but compared to Sea World which we had gone to earlier during the week, it was really empty. The good thing about that was that there were no lines to anything. We went to a few animal encounters, but I was not that impressed. The nice part was that unlike most zoos, the animals at the Wild Animal Park have a lot of space to roam.
