Minnesota’s oldest zoo houses more than 60 species, an outdoor music venue and the beautiful Marjorie McNeely Conservatory. This free community zoo (donations are encouraged) is quaint enough to stroll through, yet big enough to see many exotic animals. Make a day of it and visit the adjacent Como Town Amusement Park, an outdoor, family-friendly amusement park, pack a picnic and dine under one of the many amazing trees spread throughout the 384-acre park. You can also bring a suit and towel and head over to the Como Regional Pool. See if you’re able to ride the new zip line all the way to the finish before making your splash.
