Where To See Animals In and Around Nashville: Zoos, Safaris, and Farms


Many of my fondest memories from childhood are from visiting the zoo. I loved being up close and personal with the animals, the fun rides and the yummy concessions. I still love all these things as an adult! What is more fun than rounding up the family and heading outdoors for the day to have a unique animal encounter, and to learn and educate while you are at it! From safaris, to farms, to the zoo, be sure and check out these places below!
