Monday’s at Audubon

We all have a favorite time to visit the zoo! As a homeschool family, we have the opportunity for visit the Audubon attractions during the week when it is less crowded. When Audubon announced they were opening on Monday’s from now until Labor Day, I was over the moon excited.

We love visiting the animals at the zoo and aquarium. However, we are not big fans of the crowds that the weekends seem to bring. For some reason we always want to go on a Monday but until now all attractions have been closed. Less crowds mean that you feel like you have the attraction to yourself. It also allows us to spend as much or as little time exploring the animals without feeling like we are keeping someone else from viewing them. If we want to spend all day watching and learning about the penguins or the orangutans we can. Sure we could do this at more crowded times, but going during off peak times provides for a more in depth learning experience. And I feel as if Monday's will be the least crowded day of the week, making it the best day to visit!

All three Audubon attractions are open from 10am - 5pm on Mondays through September 2nd (Labor Day).

What is your favorite day to visit an Audubon Attraction?
