Travel From Cleveland To The Akron Zoo For Howl-O-Ween Fun This October

“Lions, and tigers, and bears… oh my! These critters certainly aren’t the kinds of native fauna you’d expect to find roaming around Northeast Ohio, but you can get to know them at the local zoos. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is fantastic, but there’s also an incredible zoo over in Akron. It’s close enough to merit a day trip, and the city has other interesting attractions that, when paired with a visit to the zoo, can make for an epic adventure. Of course, the best time to visit the Akron Zoo is during autumn. The Halloween season at the Akron Zoo is downright magical! Don your finest costume and prepare to get up close and personal with some spooky and incredible critters, because this fun little zoo is calling your name.
