Wild Wonders in Houston


The Earth is home to millions of different creatures and plants, from the tree growing in your backyard to the spider hiding behind the bookshelf, and yes, even yourself. Nearly every living thing on this planet thrives in a balanced ecosystem, and we are all connected in one way or another. Our luxury apartments at Alexan Southside Place make it easy to celebrate the best of nature right from home, thanks to our location near the heart of Houston and wild wonders.

The Houston Zoo is one of the most popular zoos in the entire United States, featuring hundreds of beautiful flora and fauna from around the world in recreations of their natural habitats, and it’s one of the best attractions in Houston that anyone should see. It’s located only four miles away from our luxury apartments, meaning that you can drive to the Hermann parking lot in fifteen to twenty minutes. As of today, there are sixteen exhibits for you to explore, each containing endless wonders of nature: come and see the new black bear exhibit that’s only a year old, or stop by the classics of the McNair elephant habitat area or the Wortham World of Primates. Some of the most iconic animals make their home here, whether they be feathered, scaled, furry, or even slimy to the touch. There are also special events, classes, and kid’s camps available throughout the year, so there’s always something new and exciting happening with every visit.

Honor our mutual home right outside your home at Alexan Southside Place. Explore our Houston luxury apartments and the Houston Zoo for your next walk on the wild side.
