Animals are awesome. Children cherish their stuffed animals and love their pets dearly, but there is nothing like getting the opportunity to look at exotic animals they can only play with in plastic. Going to the zoo is such a magical experience for the little ones and parents alike. To be in the presence of creatures we only get to see on the Discovery Channel is truly amazing, there’s nothing like it.
Our country has some of the most interesting animal parks in the world. If you’re looking to take your family to catch a glimpse of a snoozing lion pride, water spouting elephants at play or belly sliding penguins, then take a look at a list of our favorite zoos!
This quaint little zoo is in the hill country just south of Austin, Texas. Their mission is to assist animals in need through rescue, rehabilitation and education. The charming park is perfect for a Saturday family outing with an admission of only $11 ($8 for children).
