Looking for a zoo near Long Beach that is small, manageable, but still a ton of fun? You don’t have to head to LA or San Diego! Check out the OC Zoo in Irvine for a great zoo at an even better value!
We’re big time zoo enthusiasts. We regularly get family passes to the LA Zoo, and have even been known to get them to the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park. But sometimes we don’t want to have to deal with the LA traffic or make a whole weekend of going to San Diego.
If you’re looking to see some fantastic animals from the Southwestern United States, you’ll find a great collection at the OC Zoo.
Nestled in the beautiful Irvine hills, the OC Zoo is one of our favorite places, that even we tend to forget about!
