Hey everyone!  Travis here with a great update to one of our most well-known partners and Tampa staples. 

Now Tampa Bay has even more to celebrate! Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo has been named the “Best Zoo in America!” Parents magazine announced the Zoo as the winner in part of their “10 Best Zoos for Kids” survey. 50 zoos were considered in this evaluation nationwide.

The article will appear in May’s issue of Parent’s Magazine which is read by more than 15 million people. This news is an exciting addition to their previous recognition from Child magazine as the “#1 Family-Friendly Zoo in the U.S.” awarded in 2004, and is a great feather in Tampa Bay’s cap!

So, please join me in congratulations Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo and their amazing accomplishment.  I personally grew up going to Lowry Park Zoo, and it doesn't surprise me at all that they have received this honor.
