Yesterday my husband and I played tourist and visited the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. (It’s so hard for me to call it that; the name was changed after more than 20 years). The weather was perfect and we had fun seeing all the animals. It was a fun way to walk a few miles and we saved 50% on the price of admission and the tram with a daily deal site voucher.
What I like about this park is that most of the animals have more space to roam than I’ve seen anywhere else. Where do you go to play tourist locally?
