The family and I were getting restless and were looking for something to do. We wanted to go on a little day-cation to someplace we'd never been before or haven't been to in a while. We also wanted to get there and back in a day and we found the perfect place, Arbuckle Wilderness. It's The perfect daycation getaway!
After a little searching and deciding we ended up going to Arbuckle Wilderness in Davis, OK. It was only an hour and a half away from the house and the perfect spot for a daycation. The whole family had a blast and if you've never been you have to go. It's a drive-thru safari-type zoo with all kinds of animals. They're roaming free and you can even feed them. Before you hit the trail make a quick stop by the gift shop for some food and get ready for a great time! The animals will come right up to the car to be fed.

We had the best time and I couldn't stop laughing seeing the wife and kids' reactions and having various wild animals surround the car and try and put their heads in. Not to mention all the funny faces they'd make and noises. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. There are all kinds of animals from exotic to every day and everything in between. My favorite though was the donkeys, they were hilarious!
