You’ll Want To Spend More Time At This Little Known Honey Farm And Zoo In South Carolina

Have you ever fed a lemur? What about a big, hairy spider… ever held one in your bare hands? Want to hold a baby alligator? These are some of the more extreme animal encounters at a fun little interactive zoo in South Carolina that most people don’t even know is right here in our own back yard. If you haven’t discovered the wholesome family fun at Bee City in Cottageville, then it’s never too late to get in on the fun.

What began as a honey farm oh-so long ago has matured into one of the best interactive zoos you’ll ever visit. Have you already explored the fun at Bee City? We’d love to see your animal encounter photos in our FB comments!
