We are a zoo family and love going to different ones. One of our favorite is the NC Zoo in Asheboro,NC. It is about 2 1/2 hours from our house,but so worth it. I mentioned it to a few of our friends,and they wanted to go also. So on Mother’s Day we didn’t get to sleep in because we met at 6am headed for North Carolina. The drive really didn’t seem that long and we were able to get there right when they opened. We spent about 6 hours exploring and having fun! If you ever get the chance you really need to check it out!
