Luray Zoo

The one thing that I love about where we live is we are within an hour drive radius of a million and one different things to do. We can travel to Maryland, Pennsylvania, our own state of West Virginia, and Virginia and find fun, educational things to do with our kids.

Today's adventure was a trip to Luray Zoo in Luray, Virginia. It took us an hour and 15 mins to get there.

The trip down through Shenandoah Valley was absolutely beautiful! The mountains are breathtaking!

The zoo was a small zoo, with very few exotic animals, large reptile area, an adorable petting zoo, and beautiful birds from everywhere.

While there some of our favorites included:

The large condor. We never knew a condor was really that big!! Noah said it reminded him of the flying dinosaur.

Sydney loved the petting zoo. She was so frightened by the donkey...he was so loud when he called for food!

We got to see the monkeys get their 1:00 pm snack and checked out the all the reptiles! There were so man different ones!

Noah especially liked the large monitor lizard.
Hubby and I were fascinated by the Alligator Turtle. He was 150 years old and HUGE!

Loved the pictures. Noah must have been in animal heaven. Oh and I didn't know that baby kangaroos had binkies!
