Thanksgiving in Houston - Attractions
Holidays are no longer free days at the Houston Zoo. They have a new policy which changed the free admission days to the first Tuesday of every month from 2 p.m. until closing.
They are hoping that by spreading out the opportunity for free admission to 12 times each year instead of only five over-crowded holidays, that more guests will be able to come to the Houston zoo and have a better experience when they visit.
