No. 5: Blueberry Hill Farms in Edom 

This place is a ton of fun for the whole family. Go to the blueberry farm, buy a basket, and pick to your heart's content.

No. 4: Cherokee Trace Drive Thru Safari Park in Jacksonville

Go on a wild safari and experience animals up close and personal. My family and I had one of our most memorable days right here. You can drive thru the park at your own pace and feed the animals and be a part of their world.

No. 3: New York, Texas Zipline Adventures

This is New York, Texas, Not New York City. Here is where you'll find the longest zipline in Texas. This is definitely a great place to get outdoors and experience nature in a new and exciting way.

There is a tiger sanctuary right here in East Texas. You can go and visit all of the big cats and even see some babies too. Who knows, maybe you'll even get to play with one.
