Akron Zoo Debut: Journey to the Reef

I adore a good zoo, and to be honest, I’m not sure I’ve ever enjoyed one more than the Akron Zoo. Sized exactly right for spending several hours, lushly landscaped and loaded with sidebar-style activities, this immaculately-kept jewel is obviously managed with passion and staffed with some of the friendliest people you could meet.

Today’s opening of Journey to the Reef was reserved for Zoo members and attended by a plethora of family types, mostly parents who seemed eager to start off the holiday weekend with a special treat. With live music provided by Tom Todd, the grounds had the feel of a summer party something akin to what I’ve found in the Florida Keys: ever so ambient, laid-back and simply thoroughly enjoyable.
