The National Zoo is one of my favorite places in the city (if not my favorite) so when I heard that they were having Zoo Lights I knew it was something I would have to experience. On an unseasonably warm night, I left my apartment about to walk up to the zoo when I hear someone yell out “free rides to the zoo!” Big Bus had double-decker buses parked at the Metro station to take passengers up to the Zoo. I decided to sit on top to get a bird’s eye view. The traffic along Connecticut Avenue was ridiculous and it probably would have been faster to walk. I wasn’t in a hurry since it was still quite early in the evening. The zoo was packed! There were rides for the kids, kettle corn, a dancing panda, and people everywhere you turned. Enjoy, and have a blessed holiday!
