Now that the summer season is upon us a lot of you may be looking for ways to save money and do a staycation this year due to the rising gas prices. You won't have to travel too far.
Keeping the kids active is a must and what better way to make memories than with a short road trip to Busy B Ranch and Wildlife Park, the newest and largest Drive-Thru Wildlife Park in East Texas that just opened earlier this year.
This will be a drive-thru experience like no other on this sprawling 125-acre ranch surrounded by beautiful trees, lots of scenery, and of course, a large variety of over 400 native and exotic animal species that will come right up to your window.
Busy B Wildlife Park and Ranch are located on one of the highest points in Marion County with three miles of cleared roadway. You can even ride in a covered trailer if you prefer not to drive thru the park.
You will feel just like Dr, Doolittle and find yourself talking to the animals.
There's even a petting zoo at Busy B where you can interact even more with the animals.
