    34 reviews

    What a great place! Not only did I get to see animals, I got to feed and sometimes even pet them. I think my faves were the birds - both the bird show (which, oddly enough, included a capibarra) and Bird's Landing, where you can purchase popsicle sticks with birdseed stuck to them. The birds will then perch on your ...

    Southern Methodist University

    SMU is my alma mater! These days it's rife worth construction but that just means the campus is growing and getting better. It's an honor to have a Presidential library on the yard. I'm a loyal and proud alum. Oh yeah, and we don't tailgate, we Boulevard.

    1 review

    This adventure park can cater to the nature lover and the adrenaline rush seeker. You can play it safe on a low balance beam or zip through the two hundred-year-old Post Oak trees. There are six courses and four levels of difficulty, so if you're not so brave, start with difficulty level 1. I don't suggest starting with difficulty level ...
