Zoos and aquariums are often located in larger cities and tourist areas. They give the visitor the chance to learn about all sorts of animals and even offer information about the specific location or country where the animals live in the wild.

If you have a zoo near buy, consider buying a zoo membership to save money and have fun. While admission tickets seem quite expensive if you are going for the day, family memberships are usually very reasonable. If you go just once a month, the membership price is well worth while.

philadelphiazoo.org Good luck.
Do a search online. Most everyone has google (or go to google.com). Just type in the city or state and Zoo. Like if you're looking for zoos in your area, I'd search for Pennsylvania Zoos (doesn't need to be in caps, by the way). Then you just need to scan through the results. If you find one that you're curious about, you could even see what people have to say about it. Enter the name of that zoo with "ratings reviews" and see what you find.
Hope you find a great zoo, and you have fun looking at the animals!
Here's a link to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. They also show which zoos have reciprocal membership agreements. This can really save you money if you plan to go to multiple zoos.

This is what you see first when you walk into the rainforest exhibit at our local zoo. I could watch this waterfall for hours.

This was my son's first camel ride and visit for Zoo Lights in Tacoma.
This is a shot in the Cleveland Metroparks. There is a walkway through the trees at the zoo and this is a shot of one of the bridges on that walkway.
This is my Grand-daughter Rebecca "Becca". This was a day at the zoo in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She just had a ball.
