A JBLM military friend of mine was heading into Tacoma for the day for a doctor's appointment and had to take her kids.She wanted to do something fun with them as a reward for being good during her doctor's visit.I suggested the Port Defiance Zoo.Funny thing was, I had never actually been to the zoo.So, for spring break I took my kids.Beautiful!The zoo is pretty small; in about three hours you can see it all, but the grounds are immaculate, and the view of the Puget Sound from the overlook is spectacular.
The aquarium here is as large as the Seattle Aquarium at a smaller entry price - plus you get the land animals to boot.You won't want to miss the Wild Wonders outdoor theatre.The staff presents an array of unusual animals that are trained to come in and out and greet the guests.Bucky, their beaver, can be seen on a leash taking a walk around the park.Too cute!And, speaking of cute, the snow leopards have new cubs.You can watch the keepers feeding and interacting with them throughout the day.The food in the cafe wasn't bad, either.Sweet potato fries are a lovely addition to your meal.
If you're planning a visit, go to the website and buy your tickets there.You will save several dollars a person buying online.

"Showed home in 2014 in Woodmont Beach, Seatac, WA 98198.
Dana worked very hard to find exactly what we were looking for in a condominium. There were quite a few properties for sale, but few that offered what we wanted. Dana didn't waste her time or ours having us look at offerings that were not in line with our desires. She also stuck with us for a long time while we searched for just the right place. Dana also helped greatly with finding a mortgage broker, one who really listened to what we were looking for in a loan package, and deliver it. Our loan pre-approval went quickly. When it came time to close our purchase, Dana arranged to have the closing take place at our house. She was also present at the closing (as was our mortgage broker) to make sure all went smoothly and our questions answered. Dana also took great care to work around our schedule, which I'm sure wasn't always convenient for her (Thank You Dana). Dana is friendly and very professional and honest. We would recommend her to anyone shopping for a new place to live."
