Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa is a family friendly place with animals, rides, educational shows, and splash fountains for kids.

Decorated for Zoominations, pathways overflowed with colorful balloon elephants.

As soon as we got home, we showered.  We felt a bit “gamey” after hanging around animals all day.
