Sometimes, it can be hard to find a day trip destination the whole family will love. Fortunately, Ohio is home to multiple small town petting zoos (like this one) and animal sanctuaries that offer both fun and educational experiences. Safari Junction in Eaton, Ohio is the home of Valley Exotics Zoo. From camels and kangaroos to exotic birds and lemurs, you never know what sort of friends you’ll encounter. The next time you want to take the family to see some animals, consider Safari Junction.
