If you happen to live in Texas and need an awesome day trip, I’d suggest going to Fossil Rim Wildlife center and the nearby Dinosaur Valley. I have so many fond memories of both of these places and each time I go back my love grows for them.
At Dinosaur Valley, you’ll stumble upon dinosaur fossils and go wading in the water. Fantastic for a scorching hot summer afternoon. Bring a picnic lunch! Then go for a leisurely drive through an assortment of wild animals at Fossil Rim. Watch out for the emu and ostriches! My favorite are the giraffe that like to stick their heads through the sunroof and slobber all over your car’s upholstery. You really can’t get this close to the animals at a normal zoo and you can learn about that in an audio tour you rent at the entrance. Not to mention, you can feed the animals from your car! It’s just so awesome to see all of these creatures up close and personal. It continues to excite me every single time I visit.over 4 years ago
