We've visited the Dallas Zoo once since we've been back in the area. To say the zoo was "lacking" is an understatement. The exhibits were old and there wasn't much to do. We'd trek all the way to Fort Worth's zoo because it had so much more to offer!
Not so much anymore - the Dallas Zoo recently debuted an African Safari exhibit that is AMAZING! It's expansive and has so much to offer! There is a cafeteria-style restaurant with ceiling-to-floor windows overlooking the lion exhibit. Will was sitting face-to-face with a lion! So cool. We had a great time with good friends and can't wait to go back!
