Winter is a great time to go to the zoo! Animals from cold weather climates are more active now than in balmy, summer months – if you can brave the cold, you'll likely beat much of the crowd. To encourage zoo visitors this month, the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo offers special December Days with a free, heated shuttle to take you around. That way you can check out chill-loving animals like bears, wolves, and reindeer while having toasty breaks between. Also, stop by indoor exhibits like The RainForest, a two-level, two-acre indoor space that over 600 animals – like the endangered Ocelot – call home!
