In a city so devoted to taking care of animals, it’s no wonder that Austinites are always seeking new ways to connect with local and exotic critters at petting zoos, animal farms and habitats. Some of the best things to do in Austin involve getting in touch with nature and its inhabitants, whether that’s going on the city’s top hikes or wandering through Austin’s best parks and gardens. Want to pet llamas and longhorns in their natural environment? Or chill with a coterie of cats? These animal havens will do just fine.
