    Dallas Zoo encompasses 95 acres of exotic and traditional zoo animals. Visitors are greeted at the entrance by the tallest statue in Texas—a 67.5 foot giraffe.

    The new Giants of the Savanna section is AMAZING. Go early in the morning (when they open) and all the animals are out for feeding and not hiding from the heat.

    Go ape at the Dallas Zoo. It's the largest zoological park in Texas (bigger than Fort Worth's Zoo). The Dallas Zoo is home to 406 species and 1,800 animals (6,800 counting invertebrates).

    Have lunch at the Serengeti Grill. Best place to watch the lions... and have a snack.

    Best $5 lettuce you've ever bought. Worth it to feed the giraffes & get up close & personal. You won't be disappointed.
