Fun Places To Go - Roger Williams Zoo, Providence, RI

Elephants Waiting For Baths
The Roger Williams Zoo in Providence, RI is a fun place to visit.  This is true even in the winter.  We went in February 2013.  However, I do recommend that you make a warm(er) weather visit!

The Zoo is small enough that you can easily navigate through it.  There is only 1 entrance and 1 exit.  You enter the zoo and then go through the zoo in a circle like direction.  Then, you exit the zoo through the same spot.  It is large enough that you feel like you get your money's worth from the visit. 

Parking is free at this zoo.  There is even a small Dunkin' Donuts inside, across from the elephants.  There are lots of gift shops.  Most are very small but my favorite is large(r) and it is located after the snack/restaurant area.  I have found some great books and items here.  They have a ton of adorable stuffed animals.  Some are very realistic while others are made to be cute and cuddly.

Highlights of the zoo are the zebras, elephants, seals and giraffes.  Also, there is a great outdoor playground that stays open all year long.  We timed our visit just right and we were able to see the elephants get a bath indoors.
