Maymont Park in Richmond is rather epic. Waterfalls, Italian & Japanese gardens, a historic house…And that’s just the area that I’ve checked out so far. (I still haven’t managed to tour the house yet.) So on to pictures! Click here to see a couple pictures from my first visit to Maymont. Gorgeous Fall colors! More pictures soon.
So the Zoo. The Smithsonian National Zoological Park, to be exact.
You know I love big cats, and they have LOTS. And red pandas. And pandas, wolves, foxes, cheetahs, and so many great animals the Norfolk Zoo doesn’t have. The only thing I don’t like is that you have to backtrack so much. And the hills. I hate the hills. If you enter from the road/metro station areas, then it’s downhill as you walk through and uphill on the way back.
But overall, it’s a fun visit!
What’s your favorite part of the National Zoo?
(Mine’s obviously the big cats.) ;-)
