With summer right around the corner, now is the time to plan your summer getaway. You have children, you want to choose a vacation that will not only keep them occupied, but also keep them learning and exploring.
Toronto has many different educational opportunities, but none quite like the Toronto Zoo. The Toronto Zoo has over 5,000 animals from over 460 species. It is organized according to the different regions and geographical areas of the world they came from.
Explore The Rainforest
Of the many regions and places to explore in the zoo, you can wander through the rainforest. In the rainforest you will meet the Black Crake, Egyptian Fruit Bat, African Clawed Frog, a fabulous Western Lowland Gorilla and a vast array of other animals. The Aba Aba, a fish with no pelvic, caudal or anal fins is a fascinating animal for the kids to see and learn about.
Spend The Night!
For a special family treat, the zoo offers an overnight program called Panda Pajama. This amazing little program gives you access to the zoo overnight to visit with the Panda's before they go to sleep for the evening. You and your family will be taken on a guided tour through the zoo with a special pit stop at the panda exhibit. There will be planned activities for you and the family to interact together and a bedtime snack will be provided before everyone goes off to bed.
There are many different types of vacations you and the family can enjoy, but when you have children you want to make every experience you have very special. The Toronto Zoo is a special place all by itself. A sleepover with all your favorite animals will be a hit with the kids. When they go back to school, their "What I Did on My Summer Vacation" essay will be the talk of the playground.
After a fun filled day at the zoo, you set your head on a nice plush bed at any of the Monte Carlo Inn hotels. Rated #1 on TripAdvisor and a feature of downtown Markham's expanding landscape, the Monte Carlo Inn & Suites - Downtown Markham is the perfect accommodation for your visit to the Toronto Zoo, providing an elegant and comfortable cocoon to rest up between bouts of family fun.
