It's January and can you believe that for the past 2 days it's been in the 70's?! Gotta love Texas weather! This fabulous weather is supposed to continue, so why not visit the Dallas ZOO ~ they have PENGUIN DAYS after all!
What are PENGUIN DAYS you ask? It's from January 1st-February 28th. It's when admission is $5.00 Ages 3-64 / FREE Children (age 2 and under) instead of the usual $12 per children between 2 – 11, $15 for children 12 and adults (up to 64 years young) and $12 for seniors (65 & above)! Parking however is $8/car ... or you could take the DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) RED LINE to the Dallas Zoo Station ~ day ticket is $5/person and children 5 and under are Free. Ummmm, yeah, any way you slice it, PENGUIN DAYS at the Dallas ZOO is a great deal!
So put on your most comfortable shoes ~ gather up the kids and animal lovers and head to the Dallas ZOO to take advantage of the PENGUIN DAYS. The animal habitats will have you roaring! My son's favorite is the 11 acre Giants of the Savanna habitat where you can literally feed and pet the giraffes
... and of course the Lacerte Family Children’s Zoo which has a stream for splashing, ponies for riding, and birds for feeding!
Throughout the day, there are also numerous "Keeper Encounters & Training Demonstrations" that are both interactive and entertaining!
Hungry, there's a number of places you can eat at with a variety of food to purchase or you can bring your own picnic lunch. My favorite spot is the Serengeti Grill ~ you can actually watch the lions roam around on the other side of the floor-to-ceiling tempered glass window!
So whether you like lions or tigers or bears (oh my!) a PENGUIN DAYS at the Dallas ZOO will no doubt be FUN for all!
