As for Zoo's, Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo in the northend, consistently ranks in the top10 of US city Zoo's, mainly due to excellent re-creations of natural habitat.
Yep, and then there is also point defiance zoo in Tacoma, northwest trek (safari of native fuana) in Eatonville and cougar mountain zoo in Issaquah

Not to mention Kings Dominion is treated as quasi local especially to VA residents although north of Richmond. It's probably 25 mins south of the CSA border.

There's no zoo in Albany, New York (state capital city). The nearest animal park in Gloversville (has a 15k population) is a 1 hour drive away.

Which I've never visited because all I've heard is how bad it is.

DC's zoo is also pretty pathetic. It's the National Zoo and is by an order of magnitude less impressive than the B-list zoo I grew up with in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

DC has amazing food, neighborhoods, museums, architecture, etc. But zoo, aquarium and amusement parks are all duds imo.

It's a 2 hour drive! 90 minutes on the best of days.

Yeah, the CSA border (closest to KD) is the Spotsylvania/Caroline line. If you're in, say, Massaponax, then all you have to do is traverse southern Spotsylvania & Caroline County on I-95 (all of 4 exits in 28 miles with a 70 mph speed limit through rural areas) and you're there. So while the resident's statement is accurate, you'd find some disagreement over whether those areas at the southern edge of the CSA even count as NOVA. It's way different in terms of traffic/travel as you get closer to DC.

Memphis has a well received zoo and one of the few US zoos to have pandas, though its amusement park (Libertyland) shut down after its 2005 season.
