The One-Of-A-Kind Zoo In Kansas With Surprises Around Every Corner
Are you ready for another Kansas adventure? Every zoo has its own perks and place in the state, and it’s always fun seeing exotic animals up close, especially in a place where you can have so much fun. There’s not a lot of zoos out there like this one, and we’re lucky to have it right here in Kansas. Make sure this attraction is on your travel list this year, because you won’t want to miss out on everything it has to offer.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
You’ll find Ralph Mitchell Zoo at Riverside Park, 1736 N 5th St, Independence, Kansas.
While you’re in the mood for animals, make sure you get your grub at an animal-named restaurant! This restaurant and brewery is all the wild you’ll need.
