Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Colorado Springs
(4.6/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
Home to more than 750 animals, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is the only mountainside zoo in the United States. Apart from the mountainous surroundings, the zoo is home to the largest herd of reticulated giraffes in the country. Visit the tall animals and consider paying an extra fee for a few leaves of lettuce to hand-feed the gentle creatures. The zoo is also home to a refurbished 1937 carousel and a host of gift shops and restaurants.
