Dallas Zoo visits the Grapevine Lodge
It's activities like this that make me wish I could skype with an animal when I can't be in two places at once! But if you are heading to the Grapevine lodge this summer, you have got to, got to, got to check out the live animal fun inside. The Dallas Zoo will be bringing an up close and personal adventure through their outreach program, presenting 7-8 wild zoo animals right inside the Grand Lobby of Great Wolf Lodge! What a paw-fect way to spend 45 minutes as you play through the day this summer. Every Friday in July at 1:00 p.m. in the Grand Lobby. Complimentary to all guests of Great Wolf Lodge - Grapevine. Great big lodge. Great big zoo.
Rockin' A Ranch Petting Zoo visits the Charlotte/Concord Lodge
Petting zoo, petting zoo...yeah, I know what you parents are thinking "I can see a petting zoo anywhere". I'm here to tell you - no you can't, and neither can your kids. I've lived in Wisconsin for let's just say "a whole lot of years" and wouldn't you know it, I pet a real live dairy cow for the first time at Great Wolf Lodge (Wisconsin Dells) when I was 24 years old. That's not even allowed in Bucky Badger's rule book! But - wow! - there is just something super about being chilled out on vacation and getting to hang out with animals. Take some time with your wolf pups this summer at a petting zoo. Visit the Charlotte/Concord Lodge on July 4, August 12 and September 2 for pony rides, "kids" that say mmmaaaaaahhhh! and other farm animals, and enjoy the exotic animals too. You'll never know what will be there to greet you, but in the past they've hosted African crested porcupines (Google these! so cute!), giant bunnies, tortoises, chickens, bison, water buffalo, alpacas and more. Be sure to stop back and let us know which critters your kids liked most!
