I absolutely love going to the zoo. Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens in Columbia, SC is my favorite. I’ve been going there since I was a little kid, and every year Nick and I go on or near my birthday. The zoo is one of my happy places.
Last year we decided to become members. We bought a fairly low-level membership since it’s just the two of us. Basically our membership pass allows us both as many regular visits as we’d like, one visit to the holiday lights, access to any members only events, and six guest passes. It also gives us a discount (usually half off) if we choose to visit other zoos. It’s good for one year.
We didn’t go as much as we’d hoped to last year since we had a lot of unusual things going on, but we did go for one Members Night Out event, and we were able to use one of our guest passes when my friend Crystal went with me.
After much discussion we decided to renew our membership at the same level when it expired earlier this month. We anticipate being able to go a few more times this year, and we really enjoyed the Members Night Out.
I think it will be good since we both love the zoo so much, and it’s a great excuse to go since we don’t want to waste our visits.
So what about you? Do you enjoy visiting the zoo? Would you sign up for a zoo membership?
