Spend an Afternoon at Shalom Wildlife Zoo
After treating our guests to a sumptuous breakfast, we love to send them away for a small adventure in the area. From hiking and biking in the Kettle Moraine State Forest to birdwatching at Horicon Marsh, there’s no shortage of great things to do in Wisconsin near our Bed and Breakfast. One of the closest and most unique things to do is to visit the Shalom Wildlife Zoo. You don’t even have to drive to get there, as it’s located just across the street.
The Shalom Wildlife Zoo, called “America’s largest petting zoo,” is home to more than 75 different species and over 750 individual animals. It’s the highest-ranked zoo in Wisconsin, and for a good reason. It’s far from your typical zoo experience, where animals are kept in smaller spaces. Shalom Wildlife Zoo offers its inhabitants large, natural areas, which altogether makes the space feel like a park.
While you’re free to simply walk or drive through the zoo, admiring the variety of animals you encounter along the way, you can also purchase grain when you check into the zoo and use it to feed some of the animals. There are signs located throughout alerting you to which animals can be fed.
Four miles of gravel roads meander through the Shalom Wildlife Zoo. You’re free to drive your car through the zoo, but you can also walk or rent a golf cart, allowing for a better experience. You can expect to spend approximately an hour at the Shalom Wildlife Zoo if you drive through or up to two hours if you walk. By the end of April, the Shalom Wildlife Zoo will be open daily from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Once you’ve seen it all at the Shalom Wildlife Zoo, simply cross back over to our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast and enjoy the remainder of your romantic time away. Perhaps you want to indulge in a couple’s massage? Our day spa is a welcoming space designed with your comfort and relaxation in mind!
