Walked from our hotel to the national zoo which was about a mile away. It was a wonderful walk. Stopped at McDonalds for lunch on the way.
The zoo is amazing and very big. We saw most I the exhibits but most of the animals were sleeping or not in their exhibit. The wild deer roam free in the exhibits whenever possible.
On the way back we exited the backside of the zoo and ended up a long way from our hotel because my phone died and I no longer had GPS.
Well after an extra hour walk and an extra nine blocks we finally ended up back at the hotel! What an afternoon.
