The Maryland Zoo, Baltimore

#2 of 12 in Outdoors in Baltimore
For a chance to see polar bears and elephants without ever leaving Baltimore, visit The Maryland Zoo, located in the northwestern part of the city. Established in 1876, this is one of the country's oldest zoos, noted for its conservation efforts and penguin-breeding programs. In addition to an African safari exhibit, the zoo also contains an area dedicated to animals found in Maryland. This section features artificial streams, submerged archways, and life-size cave models housing native bog turtles, river otters, snakes, and bats. The zoo's farmyard, a popular family-friendly attraction, includes a petting area with rare breeds like African pygmy goats and Cotswold sheep. Save time by purchasing and printing your tickets at home. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Baltimore trip simple and quick.
