Animals are fascinating. And beautiful. And kids are drawn to them! We have a lot of opportunities in Wisconsin to see different animals — from goats and chickens, to giraffes and tigers… and everything in between.
All of the places we included are driving distance from Madison, WI (most are under an hour and a few are around 90 minutes depending on what part of Madison you live in).
We would love to hear your favorites or if there are any we should add!
