  • Racine Zoo
    Amur tigers stretch out in the sun, red kangaroos hop leisurely along, and orangutans groom each other in the shade while tree pythons and box turtles roam their tanks, oblivious of each other and everything outside. Nearby, budgies, storks, cormorants, and screech owls roost on perches and soar over the heads of their human visitors. These creatures join a menagerie of more than 250 animals—representing 76 different species—that mingle across 32 acres of natural habitat at the Racine Zoo. Together with their staff counterparts, these animals speak to the zoo’s efforts toward conservation and strengthening the bond between humans and their wild neighbors. Though they can get up close to animal enclosures, visitors also explore more immersive wildlife education through seasonal and year-round attractions. Giraffe encounters allow guests to participate in the supervised feeding of a masai giraffe, and Animal Chats prompt visitors to ask questions of the caretakers, such as how they feed the zoo's carnivores and which of the herbivores prefer italian dressing. At the Benstead Discovery Center, guests greet reptiles and amphibians and watch fish swim in a 2,000-gallon saltwater tank. In the open-air Norco Aviary, visitors can behave as flocks of Australian budgies, rosellas, or cockatiels. Children, meanwhile, frolic across the two-story climbing structure, slides, and zipline at the PlayZoo Playground, or board a colorful, seasonal miniature express train.

  • Jo-Don Farms
    Run by expert caretakers and trainers, Jo-Don Farms maintains a population of over 20 animals, who sometimes make trips off the property to visit TV studios, film sets, and even private parties. Of course, one can meet all the animals, including exotics such as tigers and zebras, by visiting the farms themselves. The animals all have names and a reasonable familiarity with people. Calling out to a pony or camel by name may get its attention and inspire a close-up visit. Other animals, such as the big cats, stay at a safe distance from guests at all times. Visitors can expect encounters both close and distant as they wander the 15 acres of paths and pens.
