Dear all, long time since I have posted here. Some of you may remember I have asked for zoo travel advise here a couple of years ago. And yes, it is the time of the year again. In two weeks time I need to make a trip in the Midwest for work. Most of it is planned already, but I have some options. My main question is - is Fort Wayne worth the visit? Or are there better alternatives here's what I have (zoos marked with * I have already visited, but are musts on this trip. Zoos without * I haven't been yet). Advise is appreciated what to do in my free weekend: Land in Chicago / Drive to Indianapolis / Visit Indianapolis Zoo Drive to Columbus / Visit Columbus Zoo* / free weekend / Visit Milwaukee Zoo* / Drive to Chicago / Visit LP Zoo* / Fly back home. - weekend = 2 days free! I see 3 options. 1) either: drive to Ft Wayne (2h30 drive), visit Ft Wayne + drive to Chicago (3h drive), visit Shedd * / Drive to Milwaukee 2) OR: drive to Cincinnati* (1h40), visit Cincinnati Zoo/ Drive to Milwaukee / but then trip to Milwaukee will be longer / Have seen Cincinnati twice already, but hey - who would not want to see the last sumatran rhino 3) OR: drive to the Wilds, but then trip to Milwaukee will be longer. Also, species list of The Wilds does not excite me very much... So, what do you guys recommend? Or did I miss some alternatives? IN general I dont mind driving in the US, but 3h in one go is about my limit.
