One unusual thing about this zoo is that the zoo train is located outside of the gates. The train runs through Brackenridge Park, and is a fun experience for younger kids. Buy tickets and board the train at a small building across the street from the zoo entrance.

Tips for Families

Ride the train! Our kiddos LOVED the train ride and looking around at everything in the zoo's surrounding area. Take snacks and drinks! The zoo allows strollers and food and drink to be brought in so save some $$ and bring along your own. Go early! While there are areas in the zoo that are air conditioned and most areas are in some shade, it does get hot during the summer so go early, avoid the crowds and then head home when it gets too hot.

For my 200th review, I decided to write about a local gem, The San Antonio Zoo. Now for those who have not visited I urge you please visit during the winter! First of all the animals (who are not hibernating) are very active. Have you heard the lion roar? Well, I've always heard them around this time of year. Also, its perfect weather for Texans to be outside in Texas! For less than $15 per adult you can spend the day at one of the best zoos in the country. There is a petting zoo.

We waited until the weather cooled off to visit the zoo, and then we went on a weekday.  GREAT choices, and all learned the hard way from past visits.  It's pretty exhausting to go in the summer. First we rode the tiny train through Brackenridge Park.  It's under $4 per person, and it'll take you past other museums and through the woods.  It's wonderful, especially for kids, and you can get off the train, see the Witte Museum, and then hop back on a later train. Then we enjoyed the zoo itself.  It was cool enough and had no big crowds, so a lot of the animals were more active than usual.  A lot of food shops were closed, but that was fine by me since they're overpriced and not especially tasty.  Eat first at...
