Site Map


The Houston Zoo is one of the most popular destinations for visitors and city residents alike. The zoo beautifully balances fun and learning with entertaining and informative animal exhibits. Located about 15 minutes from The Whitehall Houston, the zoo also features special events throughout the year. In fact, from November 18, 2017 through January 15, 2018, TXU Energy presents Zoo Lights for the sixth consecutive year. During this time, the zoo will be transformed into a holiday wonderland covered in festive lights. You can enjoy all of the sights the zoo has to offer while enjoying holiday treats like hot chocolate. Of course, the real stars of the zoo are the animals. Be on the lookout for elephants, gorillas, lions, monkeys, cheetahs, a variety of frogs and snakes, and even aquatic animals like octopus, fish, and even sea turtles. If you are traveling with kids, be sure to stop by the McGovern Children’s Zoo for a more interactive experience.
