About the Top 5 Best Zoo or Aquariums in the 2021 Parents Press Family Favorites

Parents Press’ Family Favorites was born with the idea to give readers in Contra Costa County and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area a chance to voice their opinions on their personal ‘Family Favorite’ choices for Best Zoo or Aquariums and everything kids and family. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we’ve been able to make it better and better.

The voting for Contra Costa County’s Family Favorite Best Zoo or Aquariums is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in the month of March with open write-in nominations for parent’s favorite Best Zoo or Aquariums taking place. As more and more nominations come in, the most written-in Best Zoo or Aquariums become automatically selectable and listed making it easier and easier for people to cast their nominations. And write-in nominations continue to be open until the end of the month.

As the nomination period for Best Zoo or Aquariums in the first round comes to a close at the end of March, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominee Best Zoo or Aquariums being selectable in this final round of voting during the month of April. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorite Best Zoo or Aquariums from among those that are listed.

The final winners are posted in the August issue of Parents Press

We hope you enjoy! And we hope you cast your vote in March and again in April!
