Zoos can be a tough sell for travelers. Transportation to and from, weather, timing, etc. can make a zoo visit pretty impractical. At only 3.3 miles from downtown, the Toledo Zoo is fairly close to major hotels. The zoo sports two large surface parking lots and appears close to a major public transport line. Once inside, NICE! Like many modern zoos the complex is broken up into themed zones. The ‘Museum of Science’ center is a little disappointing and the aquarium is closed until 2015 for renovation.
