The Wisconsin Zoo That Offers 100 Acres Of Wildlife Excitement

Craving a wildly good time? Consider paying a visit to Shalom Wildlife. Dubbed “America’s largest petting zoo,” it covers 100 acres and is home to more than 400 animals! But that’s not all. There are also unique exhibits, a Native American artifact museum, and an on-site eatery. Take a look:

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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
