Gotta Get Away!! (Just not too far...)

If you’re looking for a quick getaway to enjoy our recent sunshine, head on down to the San Antonio Zoo. Only about an hour and a half from Austin, the San Antonio Zoo is the perfect place for a quick family trip. They have hippos, elephants, rhinos, crocodiles - and lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Not only will the kids love the animals, you will also enjoy watching the monkeys swing from branch to branch and seeing the otters splash around in their nature inspired swimming pool.
Bring a picnic lunch or take a break at one of the many restaurants inside the zoo offering menu items such as BBQ, fried chicken, and burgers. After lunch, take a stroll to the giraffe area and let Walt fill you in on some not so well known giraffe trivia. It’s almost springtime, what better way to ring in the new season than to spend a day outside with the family learning about fun and exciting animals?
Be sure to take plenty of photos and don’t forget: don’t feed the bears!
