1: It’s spring break, so go ahead and get wild! The Como Zoo is home to lions (and sea lions), and tigers, and (polar) bears (oh my!), plus many more amazing creatures. While you are there make your way through the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory for a tropical getaway and add a little color to your life among the beautiful flowers in the Sunken Garden. Best part? Como Zoo asks for a minimal voluntary donation for admission ($3 for adults and $2 for kids). If you’re looking to ‘hit the beach’ make your way to the Minnesota Zoo for their Tropical Beach party (February 18-March12).
