While Guernsey County, Ohio is home to the state’s largest state park and third largest lake, it’s also home to several unique activities that will quickly become topics your family will talk about for years to come.
Four “Wild Adventures” to experience:
- One of the largest and most innovative wildlife conservation centers in the world is located in Southeast Ohio. The Wilds, situated on 10,000 acres near Cambridge, is home to rare and endangered species from around the world. Visitors can board a guided Safari Transport or Open-Air Safari to see and learn about the animals living in open-range habitats, including a visit to the Mid-Sized Carnivore Conservation Center. Open daily May through September. Open Saturday and Sunday in October. Tour hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. every day. https://thewilds.columbuszoo.org
- See the Wilds from an aerial perspective. Led by two professionally trained guides, the Wilds Zipline Safari is a 2.5 hour tour consisting of 10 ziplines and a series of observation platforms overlooking various exotic animal species at the Wilds. Zip along a network of cables, through the trees, over the animal watering holes, lakes, and pastures, finally landing among the amazing giraffes. http://zipthewilds.com
