Where can you visit animals from five different continents? Brainerd, Minnesota of course! I had the chance to get up close and personal with a black bear, giraffe, spider monkey, water buffalo and llama all at the Safari North Wildlife Park.

You can take camel rides or feed the giraffes.

Macy loved the barnyard petting zoo and the parakeet encounter.
