Day Trips from Brainerd, MN: Como Zoo
Free Family Activities near the Brainerd Lakes Area

The Como Park Zoo in Saint Paul, Minnesota is just an easy two hour drive south for a unique day of family fun. While you may think you’re coming for the animals, the Como Zoo is home to many family friendly activities such as Como Town Amusement Park, The soaring Eagle Zip Ride, and The Splash Park. Visiting the zoo is not only fun and education, but it is also a free family activity, and those are hard to come by. The zoo relies on donations so a donation is always appreciated. Read below for some highlights and photos from my family trip to the Como Park Zoo and Marjorie McNeely Conservatory.
