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.
