Zoos in North Carolina

North Carolina has it all for kids and families to have a great family day out! Amazing wildlife, thrilling roller coasters, magical lighthouses, amazing battleships, ghosts, pirates...what more could you want! There are so many incredible things to do with kids. There are even really fun unique attractions for the whole family, including gem mines and caverns! There are animals attractions for kids to experience, and a great history for kids to learn about. Didn't we tell you North Carolina has a ton of kids fun!

North Carolina is fun for many reasons, and one of those are the many zoos and animal attractions across the state!

There are over 500 acres of wildlife to be enjoyed within a classic zoo environment at North Carolina Zoo. The animals are even in naturalistic habitats there too!

For a zoo with a difference, why not head to somewhere like Aloha Safari Zoo, where they care for over 300 exotic creatures. Kids can learn about conservation too, just like they can at Tiger World, a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and care of beautiful big cats. 

Fancy a safari? No problem! The Lazy S Ranch has you covered with this drive through experience with over 750 animals to meet along the way.  Did you ever think a science center would have animal encounters either? Check out Greensboro Science Center with Herpetarium, zoological park and even a petting zoo!

Let's get WILD in North Carolina, because the animals are waiting to make your next family day out pretty special!
