Playing in North Carolina

Lazy 5 Ranch

Lazy 5 Ranch

My absolute favorite destination in North Carolina is the privately owned and family run Lazy 5 Ranch located outside of Charlotte in Moorseville, NC. Lazy 5 Ranch is not just for kids; I think I enjoyed it as much as the children around me, if not more. I was extremely excited to take the 3.5 mile guided safari wagon tour throughout the interactive zoo seeing more than 750 animals from all over the world. Animals from over 6 continents roam free throughout the park in their re-created “natural” habitats. During the horse drawn wagon ride, I had multiple opportunities to take pictures of the many animals, feed the animals, and pet the animals during the stops along the way.

Photo of the Week- Lazy 5 Ranch

When I was in North Carolina in July I had the opportunity to visit Lazy 5 Ranch, an interactive zoo safari. This privately owned zoo located in Mooresville has over 750 animals from 6 different continents. The 3-1/2 mile safari ‘ride’ was one of the best interactive zoo experiences I have ever had! I was able to get up close and personal with many of the animals including Giraffe, Texas Longhorn Cattle, Aoudad, Ostrich, Emu, Blue & Gold Macaw, and many more. Not only was I able to take amazing photos of the animals, I was able to feed and pet the animals on numerous occasions throughout the informative wagon ride in the park. North Carolina offers many tourist attractions, but Lazy 5 Ranch is my favorite one. I can’t wait to return!
