Visit the African penguins and all the other animals at the Dallas Zoo during Penguin Days for just $5 per person (ages 3 and up; children under 3 and members of the Dallas Zoological Society are free). Discount Admission is available in January and February.
Penguin Days is a great time to enjoy the warmth of the Herpetarium, Bug U!, the Jake L. Hamon Gorilla Conservation Research Station, and the Simmons Safari Base Camp at Giants of the Savanna. Parking remains at $8 per vehicle. When the temperature goes up in March, so does admission.
The Dallas Zoo is the largest zoological experience in Texas with 106 acres of developed land, thousands of animals, and an education department that offers programs for all ages. The Zoo is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, download the free iPhone app, visit www.DallasZoo.com, or call 469.554.7500.
Be sure to dress in your most comfy clothes and shoes, and don’t forget hats for the kids.
