Props to you if you got the Wizard of Oz reference. If you couldn't tell from the title, I'm finally getting to go to one of America's best zoos this week: the Bronx Zoo! Over the week (my spring break), I'll also be visiting Ohio and West Virginia, as well as other facilities in New York City, and posting reviews, thoughts, and opinions of the facilities I visit here. Without further ado, here's the itinerary (note: it's tentative! If it hasn't happened, it's subject to change! Friday, April 7: Drive to Columbus, Ohio after school (short day!) Saturday, April 8: Drive to Cincinnati, Ohio Cincinatti Zoo Newport Aquarium (time allowing) Return to Columbus Sunday, April 9: Columbus Zoo and Aquarium Monday, April 10: College tour Meet a ZooChatter!

I'm certainly looking forward to the following weeks, which will hopefully include a slew of new species I haven't seen before. Thanks to ZooChatters @ThylacineAlive, @savethelephant, and @AnaheimZoo for helping me plan for New York City! Time allowing, I'll post a day-by-day commentary here. I haven't decided if I'll comment on my sightseeing (it will include things such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, etc.) but if so it will be brief, unless someone asks for more. I'm leaving in just about two hours and I can't wait!
