Fort Worth Zoo

Home to more than 7,000 native and exotic animals and several indoor and outdoor exhibits, the Fort Worth Zoo provides an entire day of fun for any family. Kids can learn how to round ’em up and move ’em out at Texas Wild!, a hands-on exhibit that showcases the unique wildlife of the Lone Star State and includes a petting zoo. They can visit all four great ape species in the 2.5-acre world of primates or get eye-to-eye with some of the most endangered reptiles and amphibians on the planet at the Museum of Living Art (MOLA).

The truly adventurous can plan an overnight stay, complete with dinner and a scavenger hunt. With all these activities and more, it’s easy to understand why the Fort Worth Zoo is ranked one of the top zoos in the nation each year.
