August 13 Smithsonian National Zoo: Take a Walk on the Wild Side Near Your West End Apartment DC

Summer isn’t complete without a visit to the Smithsonian National Zoo! All you have to do is register for your free timed entry pass and get ready for a great visit filled with exotic wildlife and fun. Despite being easily accessible for a city-based zoo, the zoo takes up nearly 165 acres of space so all the animals who call it home have a safe space to roam. This means there is a ton to explore during your visit, so try to reserve a time close to when they open at 8 a.m. to see it all. 

The zoo is home to 2,700 animals covering over 390 species from amphibians and reptiles to mammals and fish. You’ll meet all sorts of cool creatures! If you want to plan your visit, you can visit their website to learn more about the animals that live there, including how endangered they are. Part of the zoo’s mission is conservation and research on threatened species, which makes it a special place making a big impact! Get ready for a day filled with unforgettable experiences and lots of new furry, scaly, and feathered friends near your apartment for rent in Georgetown DC!
