Winter Is The Perfect Time To Visit This Free Wisconsin Zoo

Once the holidays pass, winter in Wisconsin stretches out ahead of us and it feels like there’s no end in sight. We’ve got months more of this snowy, cold landscape and we have no choice but to embrace and enjoy it. You can go stir-crazy if you never head outside in the winter. Even those who aren’t the outdoorsy, hiking type will love this winter activity. Up in Marshfield, there’s a zoo where admission is free and where animals are just as active in the winter as in summer months. Did we mention that it’s in a totally gorgeous setting that looks a bit magical covered in snow? The Wildwood Zoo is the perfect way to spend a winter day. Your family will love that you don’t have to fight for space and you can watch the animals for as long as you wish. It’s well worth bundling up to get some fresh air and enjoy this spectacular Wisconsin gem.
