The North Carolina Zoo is celebrating a record attendance for 2019. The Asheboro zoo saw more than 917,309 visitors last year, that’s 85,000 more compared to 2018.

“We are thrilled to welcome so many guests from North Carolina and around the world to our Zoo,” Zoo Director Pat Simmons said in a statement. “We have plans to keep improving our programs and guest experience so that even more people can enjoy the Zoo in the future.” I love zoos and so does my family. NC has a great one and so does SC! New construction starts soon for two new areas, Asia And Australia.
