Exploring... Dallas Zoo Dollar Day 2017

By Lifeofpjern - July 20, 2017

Today was Dollar Day at the Dallas Zoo. I didn't even know about it until I was watching the news and heard about it. Me and my mom were like should we go since it's a dollar, and we're like yeah, let's go, so we did lol
Since it was lunch time when we got there, we found a parking spot and went straight to the Prime Meridian Cafe. We were hoping they had some food like most restaurants but it was more like an American fast food establishment. From all the options they had, we ended up buying the tender basket meals. Next time, I think we'll probably bring our own food, not that the chicken wasn't good, it's just not our cup of tea. Besides, the zoo does let people bring in their own food and beverages which I highly recommend you do if you plan on going anytime soon.
After eating, we went to go see some Koalas, Kangaroos, Tigers and Emus. Then, we went and stopped and got some snacks by the Flamingos to cool us down and enjoy the view. Plus, the flamingos were the only thing my mom wanted to see at the zoo.
Dipping Dots are a gift from God when it's crazy hot in Texas rn!
I wanted to go see the penguins and ride the Wilds of Africa Adventure Safari Monorail. I always like to ride the monorail when we visit the zoo, and at $5 a ticket per person, it's a decent price when the food and beverages cost more than that.
Fun Fact: these penguins are used to the warm climate not the cold.
Below are some of the sites you're able to see while on the monorail ride.

After the ride was over, we decided to leave but not before stopping at the Zoofari Market gift shop to buy some postcards and bracelets, among other things. I love buying postcards so I can use them later to send to people all around the world.

This postcard is a wooden postcard. I like it when I find magnet or wooden postcards cause it differentiates from the norm.

These conservation bracelets are only $2 each and helps save animals in the wild.

Overall, I had a great time, and you can't beat going to the zoo when the entrance fee is a $1 as opposed to it being usually $15 per person.
