Not so many years ago, the way to keep a kid occupied on a vacation road trip was to tell him or her to ‘count the cows.’ With no little cell phones to look at, children just watched America roll by, mile after mile, counting cows until Mom or Dad finally pulled the RV into the campground.
Today, people don’t travel on country roads. The interstate highway system is faster. And mostly, cows don’t live along interstate highways. Nevertheless, children – and grown-ups too – still love animals, including cows. Luckily for you, Dear Camper, there are plenty of zoos in Texas and every Quality Resort is near one. Decide on your favorite vacation destination and reserve your stay at the Quality RV Resort or Park you like best. We will find the zoo for you…
San Antonio Zoo

Go behind the scenes to see rhinos and hippos up close. A lorikeet might land on your head! Feed a giraffe and ride the zoo train. Of all the zoos in Texas, the San Antonio Zoo was named #1. Ever wonder what animals do at night? Book a twilight tour and find out by the light of the Full Moon. It’s fun for all ages! Call (210) 734-7184 to learn more.
The Texas Zoo in Victoria
110 Memorial Drive
Victoria, TX 77901
The zoo’s mission is to connect the public with wildlife. And they do that with a yearly fundraiser called ‘Wild About Wine’ every year in April. How many zoos in Texas can say that?
Attend the annual fundraiser and enjoy live music, local and imported wines, hors d’oeuvres, and wild animal encounters. Call (361) 573-7681 for more information about the Zoo and ‘Wild About Wine.’
6200 Hermann Park Drive
Houston, TX 77030
The 55-acre Houston Zoo houses over 6,000 animals from more than 600 species. With more than 2.1 million visitors each year, it is the second most visited zoo in the United States. If your children didn’t see enough cows on the way to Houston, take them to the Hoofed Animal exhibit, where they will see Ankola Cattle and other kinds of cows not found along the US interstate highways. Find out more when you call (713) 533-6500. See you at the zoo!
