The adventure at the Dallas World Aquarium begins at the top of the rainforest exhibit, where exotic birds and lounging sloths can be seen along with a wide array of animals that are part of the many conservation projects.
Take the family for a hike along the Trinity Audubon Center’s five miles of trails. Birdwatching is a popular activity at the center as well, and there’s also an indoor exhibit hall to learn more about the plants and animals that are native to the lands.
With six animal zones to explore, the Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park is great for families interested in learning more about marine life. The Freshwater Zone teaches visitors about creatures that live in our lakes and streams, while Stingray Bay shows off its namesake and you can touch and feed them as well.
Located inside Fair Park, Texas Discovery Gardens is a 7.5-acre botanic garden featuring native and adapted plants. Witness nature's intricate web of life through guided walking tours that allow visitors to see birds, frogs and other native wildlife.
Recognized as one of the country’s top 10 zoos by USA Today, the Dallas Zoo is the largest zoological experience in Texas, with a 106-acre park, thousands of animals and an education department that offers programs for all ages.
