Activities in and around SumterWith family visiting, we decided to take a trip to the zoo in Columbia, SC. From Sumter, this zoo is about a 40 minute drive. For a quick trip with the family, it is a true treasure that is quickly reached and affordable. While having plenty of attractions, it is easy to get around the zoo in a few hours when you have small children.
Toucan Riverbanks ZooI think the best part of the visit for us was when the penguins were waiting to be fed. They get very active and swim across the entire pool area. For us, the biggest joy was watching our daughter Maddie’s reaction. She was so excited she was shaking with excitement and laughing! Pure joy to a parents’ ears.
Though Riverbanks may not compare to other zoos in larger areas, it is still a great place to spend some time with family and friends. The zoo is open from 9-5 Monday thru Friday. Extended hours in the summer are 9-6 on Saturday and Sundays.
Standard admission is $9.75 for an adult and discounts are offered for military and senior citizens. For more information visit Riverbanks.org.
