There's a small zoo in Dutchess County? Wallaby damned...
One of my fondest memories when I was kid was going to the Detroit Zoo with my mom. It was about an hour away in busy traffic and all the way home I remember screaming and singing about how fun it was all the way home. Fast forward 25 years and I'm still having a blast at the zoo. I found one that's a lot closer and with way shorter lines.
Everyone always talks up the Bronx Zoo. It's extremely popular and I understand why. It's pretty massive and I'm sure they have a ton of exhibits.However, the fact remains that the Bronx Zoo could easily be an hour away or more for most of us.
It seems to be the one that everyone in Hudson valley like to go to. I'm not sure why. Especially when we have a zoo right right in the Hudson Valley.
