TRIP IS NOW FULL, A WAIT LIST IS AVAILABLE
It’s all happening at the zoo!
Join us for a relaxing day at the zoo. Southwick’s Zoo, located in Mendon, MA, is a family operated zoo in operation since 1963. With 300 acres of tree covered land and over 100 species, you’re sure to find some animals you like such as lion, tiger, leopard, cheetah, chimpanzee, giraffe, zebra, and the rare white rhinoceros. You can also attend animal presentations, bird shows and animal feedings.
Admission is $28 per adult, $24 per child (3-12), and $22 per senior (62+). Depending on the number of people attending, we may qualify for a group rate as low as $15 per person. Parking is free.
The zoo offers several places for lunch including The Zebra Café, The Deli, The Funky Monkey and several other quick service counters. If you prefer a more traditional lunch, there’s also Galliford’s Restaurant & Tavern at the zoo’s entrance. Picnic areas are available if you wish to bring your own lunch.
For anyone looking for some extra excitement, there’s the Soaring Eagle Zipline (extra charge). And for the less adventurous there’s the Skyfari Sky Ride or the Woodland Express Train Ride (extra charge).
The day will start with an at 8:45 drivers meeting at the McDonalds located off Route 146, Exit 1 at 200 Quaker Hwy, Uxbridge, MA. Departure will be at 9 am. We’ll drive some interesting and challenging roads and arrive at the zoo around 10 am. We plan to leave around 3 pm for a final drive to an ice cream stop at the Ice Cream Machine in Cumberland, RI. From there it is easy access to either I-495 or I-295 with connection to I-95.
