    On rainy days, you might have the place all to yourselves. Just duck inside the tropical bird house, aquarium, reptile house, and the Natural Encounters building. Powered by ParentsConnect.com

    The Twiga Terrace restaurant in the back between the African Forest and the giraffes sells beer. And you can sit outside and get drunk with a giraffe.

    This is a perfect attraction for family members. They also offer a summer camp for children up to 6th grade I believe to get acquainted with the zoo and become comfortable with the animals.

    Free admission on the first Tuesday of each month. Great place for families, but also a great idea for a first date. If not from Houston, prepare for intense humidity and Texas heat.

    Please make sure your kids don't hit the glass, or tease the animals. It is extremely rude and makes the animals anxious.
