Visiting the zoo with your family can be expensive, so I love Kids’ Price Saturdays at Zoo New England (which includes the Franklin Park and Stone Zoos).

From 10:00 a.m. – noon on the first Saturday of every month, all guests pay the children’s admission price, which is  $8.00 at Franklin Park Zoo and $7.00 at Stone Zoo.  It’s a great way to enjoy the zoo at a lower cost, and going early is always a great way to help avoid the crowds and the sun.
