With the warm weather upon us it’s time to start finding activities to do outside. I am always looking for activities that my little guy will love, and be somewhat engaging and educational.The Bronx Zoo is a great go to when you are looking for something fun, and this coming weekend starts The Bronx Zoo’s Animal Tales Extravaganza!

Animal Tales Extravaganza returns to the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo for the third year, on weekends from Saturday, April 21 through Sunday, June 30th. And Animal Tales Extravaganza is included with your zoo admission!
