Although relatively small and overshadowed by the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Reid Park Zoo makes a fun in-town destination for families. Africa, Asia, and South America enclosures display African and Asian elephants, white rhinoceroses, giraffes, anteaters, capybaras (the world’s largest rodents), and rheas (sort of like ostriches). Get here early, when the animals are more active and before the crowds hit. There’s a good playground in the adjacent park.
