Lisa loves animals and has dogs, rats, cats, guinea pigs, and snakes. She is passionate about animal rescue and live music - traveling across the country to see a favorite band is a pretty regular occurrence! Being out hiking in the woods enjoying the scenery with her beloved dogs is another favorite hobby, and also checking out the Pokemon Go scene in whatever city she happens to be in at any given time (coffee and dog leash in hand).

Family day trips in Connecticut are great, especially when you find one where you can visit two attractions one right after the other. One city where you can do just that is Bridgeport. Beardsley Park is both a massive natural oasis and the location of the only AZA-accredited zoo in Connecticut. The park is a great place to enjoy year-round recreational activities, and there’s nothing like seeing exotic animals like tigers and red pandas in person. The park and zoo are literally right next to each other, so after the drive there, just park and you’re good to go!
Have you ever visited Beardsley Park and Beardsley Zoo in the same day? It’s one of our favorite family outings! You can learn more from the Beardsley Zoo website. Note that tickets must be purchased online prior to a visit.
