It was a rainy Saturday and my wife decided to go to the cape may zoo as a rainy day activity. It was great and it worked well. The zoo is free and has many unique animals to see.

I like this zoo better than the Philadelphia zoo, you can get up close and personal to the animals. Neat reptile house!
