Not Many People Know About This Alligator Sanctuary Right Here In Michigan

When you think about animals who call Michigan home, alligators might not be the first creatures that come to mind. Much to the surprise of many Michiganders, though, our state houses a unique sanctuary where visitors can get up-close and personal with alligators and other fascinating reptiles while learning more about each animal. Mark your calendar for a journey to this fun spot.

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:
