“Have you ever thought of the town, city, state or maybe even country you live in? There are so many things to see; so many things to do that most overlook what they have closest to them to try discover things that are far away. That is what happen to us. We have lived in Tennessee for 15 years and many times have driven down the interstate heading to another state but on this one occasion we saw a sign and it said Safari Adventure Park, Alamo TN. On Good Friday we decided to take our grand kids to investigate it…what a rare oddity to have just a little over an hour from our house. We were able drive through the park and feed the animals through the windows of the truck. We had camels, llamas, deer, hogs, zebras, etc. come right up to our truck. What an experience we had that day; a day full of laughs and good times. Creating unforgettable memories with our grandkids. Get on the computer, look at a map, and explore the things that are near your home, in your state or somewhere close by.” Pam
