I loved this zoo! It is less than 1/2 mile from my sister's house and there are a lot of animals that were from Alaska (wounded eagles, etc). A great place to spend the afternoon!!!

I was on a cross-country bicycle tour from New Jersey to Florida, and we had to spend the night in Norristown. We had no idea what to expect, but thought that it would be OK since it said there were only 30,000 people so we expected a small, kind town. When we rode in we realized that it was somewhat of an inner city. We stayed at the Budget Inn on July 4th, 2006, and we locked ourselves in the room the entire night due to massive amounts of fear of this horrible place. Many drug addicts were roaming the streets and many motels or hotels (if you want to call them that), had bullet proof glass in the lobbies. Avoid at all costs, not a fun place to be, especially on July 4th.
