Spent the day at the Zoo one day in August. Was a rainy day so not all of the exhibits were as they might have been if it was drier. Still a really good day though! In particular we wandered in to the education room...More
Dallas Zoo has such a great staff and the animals seem very well cared for. I'm not usually a huge zoo supporter, but I love the lay out of this zoo, I think the animals are happy, and the educational elements of this zoo are...More
great looking zoo. I especially liked the reptile exhibit, it was great. there's plenty to see. you have to try and get on the lightrail train, gives you one awesome overhead view of the zoo. I think hippos exhibit was under construction, coming next year,...More
My son took me here on a weekend we visited him at college in Dallas. It was very nice. I loved how even though you were right next to the freeway at times, you couldn't see or hear it. In fact, you were in the...More
First of all the staff was friendly. Everyone was so approachable and quick to speak with us. If you go pay the extra to feed the birds and the giraffes. There are two different bird attraction so do both.
We ate at the Prime Meridian...More
We've been to better zoos but this one was nice & a fun visit. The safari monorail was cool but we wish it went around the entire park; you definitely got a better view of some of the animals from up above.
My child loves the Dallas Zoo. The signage makes it easy to navigate through the park. There is so much to see and do. Plenty of areas for resting & shade. A little pricey but worth a full day of animal seeing.
Fly into Austin or Dallas? Recommendations for Car Rental (15 Replies)
Hi, I have a 10 year old boy and need suggestion on how to divide time between Dallas/Austin and San Antonio. I want to see places that interest kids, and also take tour of top universities. We have to be in Dallas Aug 14. - 17 for some business and that cannot be changed. + My initial plan was to fly into Dallas on Aug. 12, rent a car and sightsee a few things(Arboretum, University of Texas etc). We have excellent zoo and aquarium where we live so I am not sure if the Dallas...More

Posted this yesterday, would be great to get some feedback on my itinerary. I am thinking of flying into Austin. Is taking the bus to Austin downtown and renting from there a good alternative to renting from the airport to avoid extra fees. Since I am interested in Capitol tour, Barton Springs, University of Texas, Austin and history museum and all are in downtown, do I even need a car? Thanks!
30-something couple to Dallas for weekend! Suggestions? (7 Replies)
Hey all, I'm taking my hubby to Dallas April 10th to the Mavs game and then trying to think of something to do that Saturday... he's a gun enthusiast, and I know there's a show at Big Town. But that would only consume an hour or so... any other suggestions? My goal is just to spend time together. Was even thinking the zoo... Dallas vs. Fort Worth... which is better? That night I am thinking Pete's Dueling Piano Bar. Thanks all!!!

Thanks all! Well, I had to change the plans up because I didn't realize that was Easter weekend... EEK! And I wanted to take him to Texas De Brazil in Fort Worth, so the plan now is: Thursday - Texas De Brazil in Ft W, then Pete's Dueling Piano Bar... Friday during the day... who knows, zoo vs. the gun range that dentonjohn mentioned... then the Mavs game. Sucky thing is that the hotel is in Ft. Worth, so we'll have to drive to the game, then back to ft. worth. DARNIT. OH well.

Which zoo is better? Dallas Zoo or the Ft. Worth Zoo? (4 Replies)
I am taking myself and my twin 10 year old boys to "a" zoo this weekend, so I need your unbiased opinions as to which one is the "better one" as far as selection of things to see...different animals etc. Price isn't a factor, I just want them to really enjoy themselves and not get disappointed that it's a boring place. Thank you!

The Dallas Aquarium in downtown Dallas is a really good place. It has animals and sea creatures all in an air conditioned building and all downhill. (You ride escalators to the top floor then wind down the path to the basement.) It appeals to adults as well as children. It is truly unique.
