I enjoyed my visit. There was a good variety of animals, and views are generally fairly close. In some cases animals can be viewed on more than one level as the zoo is built on a slight hill. Beware there is a $5 parking fee...More

Best zoo ever!!! The new African savanna is mesmerizing. It is a must visit place whenever you find yourself in Fort Worth. We are members, and will renew again, as we take our family members whenever they come for a visit.

Sorry I did not do an overnight adventure. Did not know there was one, missed that one. I'm sure it will be amazing & well worth your time because the rest of the zoo is amazing. Good luck!

Dallas 2.5 days with 12&16 yo (13 Replies)
We will be visiting Dallas for the first time 2/28-3/4. The weekend will be taken up by a cheer competition, I am trying to come up with an itinerary for our remaining time some ideas are: the aquarium, Ross Perot science center, and/or either Dallas or Fort Worth zoo. We will have a rental car so travelling is not a concern. I would welcome any thoughts/opinions about my choices. Thanks!

Also consider the walkable Historic Stockyards in Fort Worth and I just came across the well reviewed "Segway Fort Worth". If you've never enjoyed a Segway tour, you'd be in for a treat (weather permitting)! I believe Dallas also has a Segway tour group.

I really like the Fort Worth Zoo--it often is mentioned as one of the best smaller zoos in the country but is still large enough to have lots of things to interest everyone Very manageable. Nice kid's area as well. An added bonus is that it isn't too far from celebrity chef Tim Love's very interesting take on BBQ at his Woodshed Smokehouse restaurant near the Trinity trails. You could visit the zoo, drive over and have lunch, and then a nice walk along the trails. Also check out the hours...More

Firat, San Antonio is a five hour drive from Dallas so not a day trip. How many days and nights will you be where in Dallas and Fort Worth? Dallas World Aquarium is fun for everybody so consider that as well.
