Zoolights 2012-3955.jpg

if you haven’t been yet, there’s still time to see the Zoolights at the National Zoo. it is another one of the awesome free things to do in DC that comes around every holiday season. you can read more about it here. it is over at the end of the month, so find a nice night and get out there!

if you haven’t heard about it at all, the national zoo opens its gates at night and have lit up trees and animal “pictures” in lights. it is definitely geared towards kids with a carousel of hand-carved zoo animals, kiddie arcade, and even a long slide. there are animated lights like a fish jumping out of the water, throughout the main drag between the rock creek parkway entrance and the connecticut ave entrance. you can also walk into the small mammal house and reptile house to see the sleeping creatures.

it is a great way to get out this winter. if you get too cold, they sell hot cider (which you can get liquor added) and beer, as well as snacks and other park-type food. it takes about an hour to walk through and see just about everything. don’t miss the dancing panda by the panda exhibit!

    Little tip.

    If you say “I just want a refill on mulled wine, not another mug” sometimes they might just refill the cider for free… YMMV… IANAL.
