I love that I have friends who have busy lives; juggling work and a family (and so much more) but still find the time to help me out. Thanks to my friend Patricia for her review and recommendation on all that the Smithsonian National Zoo has to offer for families as well as a date night option.
Join the thousands of visitors who make ZooLights a part of their annual holiday tradition. ZooLights includes live music performances, tasty winter treats, and plenty of opportunities for holiday shopping. Entrance is free, while food, drinks and special activities have a cost. More than 500,000 environmentally-friendly LED lights transform the Zoo into a winter wonderland. Open November 24, 2017 – January 1, 2018 from 5:00pm – 9:00pm (except December 24, 25, 31).
