The Small Town Petting Zoo In Tennessee That’s Worthy Of A Road Trip

Tennessee’s most famous zoos are those in Memphis and Nashville, two incredible establishments that regale locals and tourists alike in two of the state’s largest cities. Although we love our big zoos, sometimes you just want an intimate, unique zoo experience in small-town Tennessee. When we stumbled across the Little Ponderosa Zoo, we couldn’t wait to share the incredible news. A locally owned establishment! A non-profit with a heart of gold! Fun for the entire family! It’s all here, and it’s a must if you’re looking for summer fun.

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:

If you’re looking for more information, make sure to check out the Little Ponderosa Zoo and rescue at their official website, or perhaps make a donation here to help support their mission in the years to come.
