Regardless of your age, a friendly animal can put a smile on your face and in your heart. Something about interacting with furry creatures is uniquely therapeutic. Hunt Club Farm has a petting area that is home to dozens of cute critters that would love to meet you, including goats, sheep, alpacas and donkeys. Chickens, turkeys and geese are onsite as well. In addition, the farm offers a special treat for birdwatchers, as it has an aviary filled with doves, peacocks, parakeets and crowned cranes.

Would your child enjoy a pony ride? Here, you’ll find 15 beautiful ponies that like nothing more than giving gentle rides to tiny tots and preteens.

Admission is $7 per person, and pony rides are an additional $5. The address is 2388 London Bridge Road.
