The North Texas area is fortunate enough to have many fine zoos. The Fort Worth Zoo and the Dallas Zoo are certainly two of the biggest and most well know but there are also smaller ones in the area worth visiting.

The Caldwell Zoo is one of those smaller ones. Located in Tyler, TX this underrated establishment. With free admission, it makes a great stop for both kids and adults.
