Do you want to do something so authentically southern that it almost seems a little dangerous? Visiting the alligator farm can be a one-of-a-kind experience you won't be able to find in colder climates. Gators are usually associated with Florida and the bayou, but there are alligator farms even in Arkansas. This farm is one of the oldest attractions in Hot Springs, AR, making it wholeheartedly worth visiting.
You will have the opportunity to hold and pet real baby alligators, learn about a variety of different animals, and even get to feed baby parakeets. This is easily one of the best petting zoos in Arkansas. It's fun for the whole family–even for children who are shy around animals. Come check it out!
