One of the best places in DC to bring children, the National Zoo has 163 acres of animal enclosures and educational activities. There are over 2,000 animals here, spaced throughout a landscape of rolling hills and paths designed to feel more like parkland. One of the most famous exhibits is the Giant Panda Habitat, where Mei and Tian receive their many admirers. Bear in mind that walking the hills can be strenuous for younger children; strollers of various sizes are available for rental.
