Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek, Michigan just scurried and roared it's way to the top of my favorite zoos in Michigan! Why? Well, there's 500 fuzzy, slithering and adorable reasons that will capture your heart!
From it's shaded expansive layout, vast variety of animals, tons of children's activities, cleanliness and amenities, you will be hard pressed to find a better Michigan zoo!
From the moment you pass the entry gates, you just can't help but do a little happy skippy dance as you just know you're in for an awesome time!
He's a beaut, isn't he?!
As if fuzzy, slithery, chatty and downright adorable animals weren't fun enough, you can...
The Miller Children's Zoo is the place where goats truly are king! Why? Wellll, kids can brush, feed and play with them all day long! (The children's zoo is included in the price of admission)
Kids can also pet soft bunnies, get eye-to-eye with llamas and climb through tunnels!
First off, there's FREE PARKING! That's enough to make a girl want to go there twice...or six times. AND they have prairie dogs... 'Nuff said. I seriously cannot get enough of their lil' chirpy attitudes. Here's more:
I carried a bag with 2 bottles of water, snacks and sunscreen. Bring your sunglasses, sun hat and definitely wear comfortable walking shoes. You will walk several miles during your stay.
You may bring strollers or rent them there.

This llama dude and I were playing the skittles-toss-into-the- open-mouth-game until they kicked me out! Something about "not feeding the animals, blah blah." He had seriously good aim too, I think it was, llama: 143 catches to me: 120 catches. We lost count after he dropped the bag into a pile of poo. Seriously. Way to ruin the fun, dude.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #funwithmyllamafriend #llamalove #binderpark #binderparkzoo #llamalover #animals #animalshots #animals_happy #sillyanimals #zoo #zoos #michiganzoo #Michigan #photooftheday #saturday #puremichigan #michigantravel #greatlakesstate #michiganstate #travelingmichigan #greatlakesstateofmind #puremittenpride #lovemichigan #michiganders #exploremichigan #greatlakesstate #greatlakesstateofmind ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #midwestmoment #onlyinmichigan#puremichiganders
