Tigers for Tomorrow at Untamed Mountain
A non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of confiscated and illegal exotic animals. It is home to over 160 animals including tigers, lions, bears, lynxs, wolves, leopards, and many more. What began as the last stop home for discarded exotic animals that were no longer needed by their proprietors has now become an educational center on the owning and mistreatment of exotic animals. It also provides the best care to its animals and is a non-breeding reserve. Located at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, it’s a large reserve where you can hang out with some wild animals and learn more about them and their importance and why we should ban the ownership of such animals and their use of them for money and entertainment.
Noccalula Falls Park and Campgrounds
Also located at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains are the Noccalula Falls Park and Campgrounds. A sprawling 500 acres of nature, waterfalls, gardens, and animal habitats. Black Creek splits the park into two with the Noccalula Falls right in the middle that descends into a gorge. On one side of the split, we have the Park and on the other, the Campground. When visiting the park side of Black creek one can find the Botanical Gardens, Animal Habit, historical buildings and two trains that take you on a journey through the park and its history. Taking the Gorge Trail will lead you to a cavern behind the falls. On the campground side of the park are grounds for you and your family to camp on. Whether you camp the old-fashioned way by pitching a tent and sitting around a campfire or travel in an RV, there are options and opportunities for all sorts of adventure seekers.
James D. Martin Wildlife Park
This park offers an easy and refreshing walk to anyone who just wants some fresh air and sunshine. It is a low-impact walk with no great inclines, great if your parents cannot handle anything too strenuous. The trail edges the banks of a lake and offers some gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. With so many people out and about, fishing, jogging, and hanging out it’s a great walk to take with your parents or for you to find a bench together to sit and watch the sunset.
