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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
You’ll find Ralph Mitchell Zoo at Riverside Park, 1736 N 5th St, Independence, Kansas.
