One of the really great things about living in the Metroplex area of Texas, is that it’s a very short trip to places in both Dallas & Fort Worth! One such day trip I really love, is The Fort Worth Zoo.
The Fort Worth Zoo has tons of exhibits and lot’s of ground to explore. Here are a few highlights from our recent trip to the Fort Worth Zoo!
Hope you enjoy!
-There are lot’s of fun statues, and rest stops along the Zoo paths that kids can touch interact with.
– One of the first sections of the Zoo is the Primate area. Monkeys, Apes, Orangutans… beautiful!
– A new Museum of Living Art (MOLA) has just opened up. It’s full of reptiles & amphibians in a child friendly environment. Even mommy wasn’t scared of them!
– One baby. One Croc. So close!
-Find a new buddy. My pumpkin did not want to EVER leave this lizards side.
-Most of the animal enclosures make it easy for little ones in strollers, or of short stature to see the animals.
-Please make sure you bring lot’s of sunscreen, and water for both yourself and any babies you have with you. It’s Texas- it’s HOT people!
The Fort Worth Zoo is really wonderful for kids, and worth a trip from across the Metroplex…or across the country! Hope you get to experience it. If you have – I’d love to know what you most enjoy there!
