55 Acre Zoo?! Count Me In!

Houston Zoo is a 55-acre massive complex that houses of 6,000 animals and represents over 900 different species. Its no wonder this goliath of a zoo is the second most visited zoo in the country. This is sure to be a hit among the whole family and no one will leave dissatisfied.

With so many amazing animal encounters you will want to plan ahead to make sure you secure tickets to the ones you want the most. They sell out fast, so if you want to hang around with Gorillas, feed a Galápagos Tortoise, or even watch sea lions paint, get your tickets fast!

Food is pretty happening around the zoo from the local’s words. With a stellar café and food trucks all around, finding good eats shouldn’t be an issue. If you want to eat outside of the zoo and try a local hotspot, we recommend trying The Raven Grill. This local favorite was voted neighborhood favorite 5 years running and when you get a taste of the comfort food, you’ll know why.
