San Antonio Zoo – The San Antonio Zoo is launching their first ever drive-thru experience this weekend. With this new experience, you’ll see most of what the zoo has to offer while maintaining safe social distancing measures. For just $60 per car, you can see their big cats, bears, and other majestic animals all from the comfort of your car! Pass holders and members can receive a special discounted price of $32 per car. Pass holders and members must present their pass and can purchase discounted tickets for the day of their tour at the drive-thru zoo entrance (even if the date is sold out). Face masks are to be worn if you need to exit the vehicle to use the public restrooms.
Hopefully these options give you a new idea of where to explore now that you have probably overdone the same bike/run/walking trails. As always feel free to reach out to us if you have any additional recommendations that you feel are worth a try.
