Taviano Family

A family of 5 from Ohio have traveled the United States and have visited 52 Zoo’s in 52 weeks!

Marla Taviano, her husband and 3 daughters started the trip in August 2008 and just ended their journey this past Saturday. 

Asked why such a trip?  Marla says she got the idea while trying to think of an adventure that would feel like traveling the world and seeing exotic creatures and animals, but they needed to be on a budget.

They traveled 22,000 miles.  55 Animal Parks.

The family has their own web site and they plan to write a book of their adventure.

Sounds like a great year for the family.
