A picture of a giraffe

Just a 50 minute drive from Pinehurst in Asheboro, is home of the world’s largest natural habitat zoo, the NC Zoo.  This zoo is one of our favorites and is our #27 of the 52 reasons we ❤ the Sandhills!

The zoo’s interactive exhibits, like feeding the giraffe’s or taking an African Wildlife Adventure with a Zoofari are ones that will create fun memories.  Your kids or grandkids will enjoy the zookeeper talks and be sure to save time for the Air Hike Ropes Course!  For more information about hours, activities, and planning your visit to the zoo, click here
