2. AUSTIN ZOO


A non-profit organization dedicated to rescue and rehabilitation of animals of all kinds from lions and tigers to bears...oh my! Located on the southwest edge of Austin, Texas, the Austin Zoo draws visitors from around the world to learn about the rescued animals and to spend quality time outdoors in the Texas Hill Country. With over 300 animals that call the Austin Zoo home, it's as great place to host a birthday party, learn about the mission of the zoo or ride the train, the Rawhide Rocket, that snakes through the property. Stop at the gift shop to pick out a specialty item; all proceeds go towards the care and wellbeing of the animals. The Austin Zoo is open every day except for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
