Greenville Zoo

One of the top tourist attractions every year in South Carolina is the Greenville Zoo.

A 14-acre facility, the zoo is home to some of the most unique wildlife in the region and offers educational programs for visitors of all ages. Among the wildlife at the zoo are giraffes, monkeys, giant tortoises and elephants. There is also a Reptile Building, with lizards, frogs, turtles, and snakes. After you tour the grounds, visit The Safari Shop for zoo-themed gifts to take home.

Some special events in 2013 include National Endangered Species Day on May 17. Come discover how many animals at the zoo are endangered species. Also on tap is Brew in the Zoo on June 1. Adults may sample an assortment of beers and enjoy live music, all while exploring the zoo after hours. Also, every Tuesday, you’ll find an instructor from the Greenville Zoo’s Education Department at select exhibits talking about that animal and answering any questions.

The zoo is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission rates are $7.75 for adults and $4.50 for children 3-15. Children under 3 are admitted free. The Greenville Zoo is located at 150 Cleveland Park Drive in Greenville. Call 864-467-4300 or visit for more info.
