Southwick’s Zoo, a privately owned zoo that is the largest zoo in New England, opened for the season on April 16th. In my opinion, Southwick’s is a bit of a hidden gem – many families often head to the Franklin Park or Stone Zoos (or even the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Rhode Island), rather than investigate this zoo.

Southwick’s is open seven days a week from 10am to 5pm, and offers a skyfari ride (additional fee), Bengal tigers, African lions, giraffes, and much more!
