When studying animals, touch can be crucial in distinguishing between a snake and snake that seems to be attached to an elephant's nose. Hone your tactile faculties with today's Groupon: for $7, you get petting-zoo admission for two to Fiesta Farm (a $14 value).
Guests both old and young explore the visual, tactile, and auditory beauty of the animal kingdom on Fiesta Farms' 15-acre ranch. Herds of potbellied pigs, donkeys, playful goats, and tame emus cozy up to curious kids and deliver thought-provoking soliloquies to adults. Eyes swoon at the sight of the peacock's multihued plumage and the llama's lush coat, and the farm's bay quarter horse, Laredo, loves to trot children around—a pony will oblige smaller children desiring to ride. Visitors embrace the miracle of life by feeding calves from the bottle and embrace a youthful sense of wonder while trying to catch bubbles spewed from the bubble machine or a llama's mouth. Guests can also take advantage of shaded seating, scenic views, and a large, cooled barn and play area.
In the pens at Fiesta Farm, light scattered by the branches of tall trees shines down on a menagerie of mild-mannered pets. Youngsters cautiously reach out to touch the wooly ears of llamas, feed curious goats, and stroke the silken fur of bunnies in the fresh air of the farmyard setting. On the ranch, sheep, chicken, geese, ducks, ponies, donkeys, and emus vie for visitors’ attention across the wooded landscape, along with hay rides, play areas, and photo opportunities. Visitors can also enjoy the petting zoo and pony rides, and make use of several shaded picnic areas before and after visits.
