Check out the zoo Parents Magazine named one of the "10 Best Zoos" in the nation. In addition to a special children's zoo and an aquarium filled with exotic aquatics, the zoo's Natural Encounters facility gives kids a "nose to nose" experience with animals.
Houston has one of the best zoos in the country. Be sure to feed the giraffes while you're there!

The Houston Zoo is open all year long, check out their website and see what special events they are hosting for families!
“Free on Thursday. Awesome collection of 6,000 years of human history and 64,000 works from six continents.”
“This museum has it all – a dinosaur hall, planetarium, IMAX theater, and butterfly exhibit. I’ve always enjoyed the gemstone collection. Parking can be a nightmare since the zoo is close-by. I’d Uber there instead.”
“Whether its a Texans game or the Rodeo, you will always have a great time at NRG! ”
“Houston's largest mall, with shopping, ice skating rink and food court/restaurants”
“This world-class museum is crazy fun for all kids, featuring 90,000 square feet of interactive and bilingual exhibitions in the areas of science and technology, history and culture, health and human development, and the arts. Kids can run their own city and compile their own TV news reports at Kidtropolis, make their own gadgets in the Invention Convention exhibit, and check out the forces of hydropower at FlowWorks. And for children three years and younger, Tot Spot provides a fun-filled wonderland of invigorating activities for infants and toddlers.”
