- Plan ahead A date at the zoo is an outdoor adventure and will last several hours. Be prepared for the ever-changing Indiana weather. Know the show schedules and the appropriate costs. Of course you’ll want to dress to impress but remember you’re going to be outdoors and walking a lot.
- Pack a picnic While there’s plenty of places to grab a bite to eat in the zoo, why not plan a picnic in the park? Find out your date’s favorite snacks and pack a cooler & a blanket. This gives you the chance to be a little romantic without being surrounded by 5 year olds.
- Take a camera There will be lots of photo ops on your date, so be sure to take your camera (or at least be sure your iPhone is charged). A funny pic of you feeding the goats or roaring with the lions will provide memories for years to come!
- Relax The point of a zoo date is to relax and have a good time. This is your opportunity to get to know one another in a casual environment that isn’t a formal dinner or a night out in the club. The sites at the zoo are sure to provide great opportunities for conversation so go with the flow.
