Here in Abilene, we are very fortunate to have one of the best zoos around. In fact, the Abilene Zoo is the number 1 attraction in the key city. And, it continues to get better with the opening of a new exhibit called 'Caribbean Cove' this Thursday (June 27th).

'Caribbean Cove' will be home to over 30 new species including spider and tamarin monkeys, two-toed sloth, tayra, prehensile-tailed porcupine, and countless amphibians and colorful birds - all of which will be surrounded by a tropical setting.

I don’t know about you, but even at my age, I still love going to our zoo with the kids. It’s just a cool place to check out so many different types of animals, hang with the kids, or even just a place get your thoughts together. So, if you love going to the zoo, you'll definitely have to check out the new exhibit.

The Abilene Chamber of Commerce will do a ribbon cutting ceremony for 'Caribbean Cove' this Thursday (June 27th).
