It's no surprise that every zoo in America is getting ready to be decked out in Christmas lights and decor for the next two months. To be honest, it's probably the best time of the year to go to the zoo; cute animals and Christmas go pretty well together. This zoo in Tennesee has come in the Top 20 Zoo Light Displays by USA Today for two years in a row so you know it's going to be good.
The Suntrust Memphis Zoo has some of the best Christmas Light Displays in the country. People come from all over just to visit this zoo and see what all the hype is about. There are nearly one million lights spread about and you don't want to miss a single one.
In addition to that, there is an outdoor ice skating rink, light tunnels, singing Christmas trees and Christmas tunes throughout the park as you look at all the animals.
There will be different spots set up throughout the zoo that are holiday-themed and even a tram that will take you to see all the lights so you don't have to walk the whole time.
If you are 21 and up, there will be special holiday cocktails waiting for you at the cafe that's located inside the zoo. This will make your experience even more enjoyable than it already will be.
After you've grabbed a drink or two, you should head to the glass maze to see if you and your friends can find your way out. There will also be a 90-foot Ferris wheel that is only $5 to take a ride on.
If that wasn't enough for you, there's also an ice skating rink that is only $6 that you can test your luck on.
Other Christmas events in Tennesee in the next two months include Bristol Motor Speedway's popular Pinnacle Speedway in Lights event and this boozy Christmas event at the Chattanooga Zoo for those 21 and up.
