If you’re planning a fall motorhome rental excursion, you may want to plan a stop at North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, NC. Celebrating its 40th year, North Carolina Zoo is a favorite NC attraction for local families and visitors alike. You can enjoy animal encounters from creatures from all over the world, enjoy a 4-D movie in the zoo theatre, learn about local plants and wildlife, and much more.
The North Carolina Zoo website tells visitors, “Discover more than 1,600 animals and 52,000 plants along five miles of shaded pathways.” Animal exhibits are primarily from two regions: Africa and North America. A few intriguing creatures include the African Lion, the Southern White Rhinoceros, the American Alligator, and the Harbor Seal. The North Carolina Zoo also has an extensive bird aviary, featuring a variety of winged animals.
In addition to animal exhibits, North Carolina Zoo also features its 4-D theatre, currently featuring Rio. Kids can also enjoy the playground and carousel areas. Both children and adults alike may enjoy the hiking trail that begins within the zoo grounds. The hiking trail takes you a mile up Purgatory Mountain, which is thought to be a site of distilleries during the prohibition era.
North Carolina Zoo is located in Asheboro, NC, just at the base of the Uwharrie Mountains. The town of Asheboro is truly a southern town, full of charm and history. After your zoo visit, you can grab a bite to eat at a local restaurant, do some shopping, or even catch a performance at the newly renovated Sunset Theatre. If you plan to stay in Asheboro overnight in your motorhome rental, you can find several local campgrounds. The closest family campground to the North Carolina Zoo is Trails End Family Camping, only about three miles from the zoo grounds.
