If you have been tempted to go on a safari, but you don't want to leave America, here's the solution! Leave your passport at home and take a wildlife adventure tour at a bed and breakfast in this country. Lions and tigers and bears are just a few of the crazy critters you can spend time with while staying in fun-filled accommodations.
Participate in pachyderm patrol at Vision Quest Ranch and Safari Bed and Breakfast in Salinas, California. Experience an Exotic Resort Zoo getaway in Johnson City, Texas, with kangaroos, wallabies and endangered species. Hang with the herd at Blonde Bear Bed and Breakfast in Kenai, Alaska, to view caribou, moose and much more. Play with pastured ponies and alpacas at Menemsha Inn in Massachusetts.
Animal lovers of all ages will especially enjoy the adventuresome activities available at these inns.
