I've never been to either of those but I've been to the Cleveland Zoo a few times.

Cincinnati zoo is great. The edge of Appalacia preserve is supposed to be awesome. The Cincinnati nature preserve is pretty great.

I have to Cleveland Zoo & Columbus Zoo, they both have rainforests. I like the zoo, period.

We just went to the African Safari Wildlife Park for the first time this summer. It was great, my kiddos loved it. We also frequent the Cleveland and Toledo Zoos. We've been to Akron but it's a bit small to be worth the drive for us. We're planning to hit Cleveland and Columbus next summer once DD2 is here.

Of them all, I think Toledo is my favorite.

Edit to Add: Here are some of the furries you encounter at the African Safari Wildlife Park. It was pretty cool but there was a LOT of slobber, lol.

The Columbus Zoo is really great I just wish we lived a little closer to it. The Newport Aquarium is very nice as well. There are restrictions on stroller use though so if you have little one's be sure to check  if you can bring a stroller on the day you plan to go.

The Newport Aquarium is great, I agree!! I went there years ago and from what I've seen on their website, they've only improved it over time. I keep meaning to get my kiddos there but we never do make it all the way out there. :(

I have only been to the Cleve & Akron zoo's. Cleveland is decent, Akron is so small.
