My favorite thing about the Dallas Zoo is the animals always seem happy. It has great shows, zoo food standards, and a monorail ride that is very educational. Don't miss the Simmons Hippo Outpost or the Gorilla Exhibit that is home to some of the most endangered Gorilla's and two new"ish" babies…

“Great place to experience art in all forms and the best part is it is FREE admission. Special exhibits are the only thing they charge for. They have a cafe in the museum and is located across the street from klyde warren park where a bunch of food trucks park.”
