California has a variety of large and small zoos. From the immense San Diego Safari Park to the many wildlife rescue stations throughout the state, California is a virtual Noah's Ark. From reptile and exotic insect exhibits to flamingos and elephants, California zoos are the perfect place for a day of safari. California also has some of the best sea aquariums in the country from SeaWorld in San Diego to Ocean World in Crescent City. Whether you're looking to get soaked by an Orca whale or dip your hands into a shark touch tank, California aquariums have it. Zoos and aquariums are always one of the best choices for fun things to do with kids.
