It’s that time of year where we hike up the hill at the National zoo in the dark with whining children complaining about cold toes: Zoo lights! And it’s much more fabulous than I just described it. Your first thought at entering the zoo and witnessing the colorful lights line the main walk way is, “This must have taken forever.” It’s truly impressive (though in the kids’ defense, cold), and it’s always fun to see what few animals are still awake after the time the zoo is ordinarily closed. Since the Great Ape, Small Mammal and Reptile Houses are open past closing, you also get some respites from the weather.
In the Visitor’s Center, the zoo houses zoo-themed gingerbread houses (this year, it was all about the pandas) and model train exhibits. Lights along the path cater to different themes (animals, of course, under the sea, flowers…). They have tubing and a little train ride, too. If you’re in Washington DC during the month of December, I urge you to visit.
