Petting Zoos/Horseback Riding

Petting zoos provide for wonderful family-friendly activities. Adults and children will enjoy getting up-close and personal with animals of all varieties, from common barnyard residents to sometimes more exotic breeds. At Animal Gardens, you’ll find 16 species of exotic creatures as well as 60 hay-eating animals. Being able to pet and interact with these animals is often a unique experience for visitors, particularly young children from the city. Petting and feeding that friendly furry creature can teach children the importance of caring for other living beings, an important life lesson.  Looking for a bit more adventure in your activities?  Try your hand at horseback riding.  Whether you’re a novice or an experienced rider, Dan Patch Stables at Grand Geneva has trail rides year round, taking you and your family through the beautiful Wisconsin countryside.
