Home to April the Giraffe, Animal Adventure Park is located in Cartersville, just 20 minutes outside of Binghamton. With a hands-on approach to animal education, the park is great for families and school field trips.
Also, the zoo offers summer camps and party spaces that can be rented out for events. Bailiwick Ranch and Discovery Zoo is just east of the Catskill Mountains.

Unlike other zoos, its exhibits are more authentic, with wooded paths and more natural looking enclosures and exhibits housing more than 100 species of animals, like the two-toed sloth, Nile monitor, green Araceli and more. The zoo's feeding and petting area is home to the popular African Pygmy Goats, but zoo goers can also experience more peculiar creatures.
They can also go into the zoo's maternity ward, getting to hold and pet baby goats and their mothers. Families are encouraged to bring a picnic or buy from the on-site eatery and turn their visit into a full day trip.
The zoo has grown since then, and is now 32 acres and the second most-visited attraction in the Thousand Islands area. Just outside the bustling Syracuse metro area is the Rosamond Gifford Zoo.
There are also spectacled bears, red pandas and an open bird exhibit, where zoo goers can walk through a mini man-made rainforest as birds swoop and fly from tree to tree around them. The Seneca Park Zoo in Rochester first opened in 1893, mainly showing off a handful of deer species and different types of birds.
