  5. Milwaukee County Zoo


    Milwaukee County Zoo

    The Milwaukee County Zoo is one of the area’s premier family attractions, and for good reason. More than 2,500 animals representing 330 species, from bonobos to polar bears and big cats to giraffes, are housed on 200 acres of natural habitats at this nationally-recognized zoo. Make sure to check the feeding schedules to be able to watch your favorite beasts dine – you can even feed the giraffes yourself. Kids will also love educational wildlife shows like the Oceans of Fun Seal & Sea Lion Show and taking a ride on the zoo train.
