Head to the Franklin Park Zoo the next time you find yourself in Massachusetts for a fun family vacation. Pigeons and alley cats are the most exotic animals you'd normally expect to come across in the heart of a major city like Boston. Horses and cows stopped being kept in town more than half a century ago, and you'd need to watch nature documentaries on the Discovery Channel to see wild creatures like giraffes and leopards--unless, of course, you know about the Franklin Park Zoo, a real urban oasis of 72 acres located in Roxbury.
