The Nation’s Largest Walk-Through, Natural Habitat Zoo — Located about 75 miles west of Raleigh in Asheboro and nationally recognized as one of the nation’s finest zoos. It was the first American zoo designed from its inception around the “natural habitat” philosophy–presenting animals and plants in exhibits that closely resemble the habitats in which they would be found in the wild.
