The Lacerte Family Children’s Zoo is a major attraction with the exhibits that allow for interaction and learning. At the Discovery House EK had the opportunity to pet a snake. Although I cannot remember the specific variety, it was definitely not something I would want to have sitting in my lap like the animal handler.
From the largest outdoor floral display in the Southwest, to the largest biological experience in Texas, it has been a big Spring Break!
