Visit the Houston Zoo with your kids, relatives and friends for a fun and amazing experience. They have a variety of large animal exhibits including elephants and gorillas. Visit early before the day gets too hot and the animals go for shelter.
The houston zoo keeps growing and it's awesome. Parking can be bad but here's a protip. Park in the rice village (free) and take an Uber there (about $5). Save stress+time of finding parking and walking to entrance.
