Are you looking for a fun family trip? Something exciting, but educational at the same time? Then the Fort Worth Zoo is a great place to visit! Just minutes from downtown Fort Worth, the zoo has animals from all over the world and some special ones from Texas. It has been ranked the number 5 zoo in the country and is one of the top Fort Worth attractions, making the trip well worth it! And since springtime starts early in Texas, now is the time to take your trip. With afternoon temperatures in the mid 60s-70s, there is no better weather to spend the day at the zoo.
The Fort Worth zoo has many wonderful exhibits, but one that makes it unique is the Texas Wild exhibit. This section of the zoo focuses on wildlife conservation while highlighting the many unique animals of Texas. The exhibit is divided into sections that represent different areas of Texas and show the animals that thrive in each of the habitats. You can get an up close look at everything from white-tailed deer to diamondback rattlesnakes and Texas horned lizards. This exhibit provides a fun way to learn about Texas and the wildlife that inhabits the great state.
You’ll definitely want to check out the Crocodile Café for lunch. With items like “Croc Mama burritos” and “crocamole,” lunch is guaranteed to be just as fun as seeing the animals. Another option is to pack a picnic. This could be a fun time to imagine you’re on safari in Africa and are picnicking alongside all the elephants and lions. Either way, everything is more fun when you’re at the zoo.
While you are visiting, be sure and check out the many educational programs the zoo offers for kids. Certified teachers lead fun camps and classes about wildlife conservation in which your child will get to experience a new kind of learning. In today’s world it is so important to get kids outside and excited about learning. What better way to do this than let them spend the day at the zoo in a dynamic, hands-on educational program?
