National Zoological Park, {CATEGORY}

The zoo's biggest draw remains the three giant pandas: Mei Xiang and Tian Tian and their offspring, Tai Shan, born July 9, 2005. But don't stop there. Established in 1889, the National Zoo is home to about 400 species - some 2,400 animals - many of them rare and/or endangered. A leader in the care, breeding, and exhibition of animals, it occupies 163 beautifully landscaped and wooded acres and is one of the country's most delightful zoos. You'll see cheetahs, zebras, camels, elephants, tapirs, antelopes, brown pelicans, kangaroos, hippos, rhinos, giraffes, apes, and, of course, lions, tigers, and bears. Enter the zoo at the Connecticut Avenue entrance, you'll be right by the Education Building, where you can pick up a map and find out about feeding times and any special activities. Note that from this main entrance, you're headed downhill, the return uphill walk can prove trying if you have young children and/or it's a hot day. But the zoo rents strollers, and snack bars and ice-cream kiosks are scattered throughout the park. The zoo animals live in large, open enclosures - simulations of their natural habitats - along easy-to-follow paths. The Olmsted Walk winds from the zoo's Connecticut Avenue entrance all the way to the zoo's end, at Rock Creek Park. Two paths stem off the central Olmsted Walk: the Valley Trail, leading to seals, sea lions, beavers, the bald eagle refuge, and other North American mammals and birds, and the Asia Trail, which takes you past sloth bears, frolicking giant pandas, fishing cats, clouded leopards, and Japanese salamander. You can't get lost, and it's hard to miss a thing. Be sure to catch Amazonia, where you can hang out for an hour peering up into the trees and still not spy the sloth. (Do yourself a favor and ask the attendant where it is). You'll notice construction underway for the Elephants Trails, a new permanent exhibit that will provide an improved elephant habitat, including exercise trails, it won't be complete until 2011. If your children are ages 3 to 8, don't miss the Kids' Farm at the very bottom of the zoo. Ducks, chickens, goats, cows, and miniature donkeys are among the animals kids can observe up close. Children might also enjoy the vegetable garden and pizza sculpture. The zoo offers several dining options, including the Mane Restaurant, the Panda Café, and a number of snack stands. Other facilities include stroller-rental stations, a number of gift shops, a bookstore, and several paid-parking lots. The lots fill up quickly, especially on weekends, so arrive early or take the Metro. Early Risers? - Zoo grounds open daily at 6am, which might be too early for a lot of tourists, but not for families whose young children like to rise at the crack of dawn. You know who you are. If you find yourselves trapped and restless in the hotel room, hop on the Red Line Metro, which opens at 5am weekdays, 7am Saturday and Sunday (or drive - no problem parking at that hour), get off at the Woodley Park-Zoo station, and walk up the hill to the zoo. Lots of animals are outdoors and on view. A Starbucks, which opens at 6am Monday to Saturday and 6:30am Sunday, is directly across from the zoo's entrance on Connecticut Avenue. Good morning.
