Tens of thousands of guests are expected to visit the Dallas Zoo for the second Dollar Day of the year, presented by MetroPCS and featuring $1 admission and dollar deals all day.

Dollar Day is the Zoo’s way of showing its appreciation to the community for support throughout the year. (And it’s a great family outing while the kids are out of school for Thanksgiving.) With the help of MetroPCS, Dollar Day makes the Zoo available for everyone and provides an affordable experience the entire family can enjoy.


Take the DART Red Line straight to the Zoo entrance to avoid the traffic and parking. Schedules can be viewed at http://tripplan.dart.org/hiwire.
