Austin Zoo – Texas

Austin Zoo is not your typical zoo and would be more suitably called a sanctuary.  It takes in unwanted exotic animals and gives them a place to live.  We have been to other animal sanctuaries and support them in what they do.  However, when I tell my 5-year-old we are going to a zoo she …

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! If it has claws, sharp teeth, and roars chances are it will have a nice home at the Out of Africa Wildlife Park.  Such a large variety of predators on display. However, it has a lot more to offer than just a typical zoo experience.  It is probably the …

What a difference a few years make.   It seems like we had just visited Bearizona, but the years are flying by.  Three quick years later and we were back in the Flagstaff area of Arizona.  This trip was more of a work related adventure.  I brought my inner-city cross-country guys along to do some high-altitude …

This was our third time staying in West Yellowstone and we had never been to the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center.  When I realized we would receive a discount for running in the Yellowstone Half Marathon our mind was set.  This trip to Yellowstone we would take the time to see the Grizzly and Wolf …

The D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery really made our tenting experience worthwhile for our little girls.  Located right next to the Spearfish City Campground in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  Arguably the best campground that my wife or I have ever been to.  Part of the reason it was so great was because …

We had good times all around at the Tennessee Safari Park.  Just a short drive off I-40 not far from Memphis this drive through safari is a must see.  Large variety of animals.  A very reasonable price.  Arguably the largest feed bucket we have ever been given at safari park.  All-in-all a great bang for …

The Arkansas Alligator Farm and Petting Zoo is a small but enjoyable attraction in the tourist trap town of Hot Springs.  Knowing that we were in Arkansas and not Florida or Louisiana we did not have the highest of expectations going in.  It surpassed those expectations unfortunately by not as much as we hoped.  Now …

It was slim pickings for animal attractions as were traveling through Western Colorado.  Luckily for us the Children’s Nature Center in Fruita was there.  Our 3 year old can’t get enough when it comes to animals.  Small…big… it does not matter she loves it.  So when she overhead Karen and I talking about the possibility …

Wild Wilderness Drive-Through Safari

Wild Wilderness Drive-Through Safari is a little off of the beaten path.  Located in Gentry, Arkansas this place is on the better end of the spectrum of drive-through safaris that we have been on.  Going in we did not have high expectations, but thought it was worth checking out for our kid’s sake (and our …
