On December evenings, Utah’s Hogle Zoo shines with more than one million holiday lights. The strands wind around trees, railings, and architecture, framing pathways in festive colors and animated displays of zoo critters. Across the lit tunnel of a 135-foot bridge, grizzly bears, river otters, and bald eagles await spectators in the recently opened Rocky Shores exhibit, where a heated underwater viewing area peeks in on swimming seals, sea lions, and the resident polar bear. While journeying to other live attractions—including wolves, snow leopards, or the reptiles inside the small-animals building—visitors might encounter carolers or ice carvings in progress. A pair of small reindeer stand guard at the Macy’s sponsored Santa’s Station, charming youngsters who report for a photo with Santa himself.
