not your typical urban zoo, the austin zoo is located outside of town, off of 71 west and then down a winding road that had the hubby making jokes about being sent to a secret site for alien abduction. the small number of cars in the parking lot didn’t do much to convince him that it was going to be cool.we ended up having a really great time. it wasn’t crowded, and there was lots of space to run around. the trails are a little rugged, so i think i would take a sturdier stroller next time.
we got to feed the animals (not the lions, tigers and bears, oh my!) and ride the train! i can’t wait to go back and we are thinking about getting a family membership. it would be a great stop an run around spot for us for trips to austin.
