This Ice Creamery And Petting Zoo Is A Texas Dream Come True

We’re all about our ice cream here in the Lone Star State (as long as it’s Blue Bell, of course.) Farm animals also have a special place in our hearts whether we grew up with them or simply admired them at the State Fair — so why not combine two of our greatest loves? It might sound a bit strange, but it works beautifully. Come to the Jersey Barnyard in La Grange to pet friendly, adorable barnyard critters before ending your visit with a heaping scoop of ice cream. There’s truly no better way to spend a country day.

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:
