A Day at the Dallas Zoo

by Mike Yeo on May 17, 2012

Summer will be approaching quickly. Most parents are planning trips with the kids. If you are planning for a stay-cation this year, what would you do with your kiddos?

How about a trip to the Dallas Zoo and to top that, what about a DART train ride to the zoo?

The Dallas Zoo opens from 9am – 5pm. If you live in Frisco TX, you can plan to take the DART train (Red Line) at the Parker Station in Plano. It takes about 45 minutes to get from the Parker Station to the Dallas Zoo. I promise you that it will be a fun and exciting train ride, just in itself for the kids.

It costs $12 per admission for children between 2 – 11, $15 for children 12 and adults (up to 64 years young) and $12 for seniors (65 & above). Children under 2 years old is free.

You could spend at least 5-6 hours at the Dallas Zoo, with lunch options in 3 different restaurants (Serengeti Grill, Zoofari Food Court and Wilds of Africa Grills).

Plan to bring your strollers too. In case you forget, you can always rent it at the Zoofari Market, just past the main entrance for $10/day.

The children gets to visit lots of animals, learning about them and their habitats. Throughout the day, there are short programs to introduce the animals to the visitors also.

If you haven’t been to the Zoo lately, or your children has not been, it’s definitely a trip worth taking. You will have conservations about your trip for the next few days. It will definitely raise their awareness about animals and the surroundings we all live in.
