    This route includes CCS charging stations. For Tesla Superchargers, follow this link.
    With a fully charged vehicle, make your way to Lake Marina, the first "clean Marina" in Missouri and venture on a kayak, or wander the area. There's a plethora of other things that are offered here. Thereafter, drive to an 110-acre fence enclosure that has a variety of hoofed animals.
    There, you can feed them and learn more about bison, elk, and white tailed deer. Subsequently, it's time to head to another place with animals. But this place has alpacas, and the owner has a vast amount of knowledge about these fluffy creatures. This trip is filled with meeting animals and has a little bit of nature mixed in.
    Make sure to fully charge your car before going on a road trip.

    Beautiful Lake, Wild Animals, and Alpacas

    Begin your journey with a fully charged car and start making your way to Lake Marina. There, you have many things that you can do along with winding down and relaxing with the joy of nature.
    Get splashed while you start feeding carp. This marina is one of the largest full-service one in the area and is home to over 600 boats. The lake is about 720 acres, which means there's a lot of space for water fun!
    Up next, it's time to drive to the enclosure that's filled with hoofed animals awaiting for yummy food. There's a variety of animals to see and learn about throughout the day.

    Several carp overtake the area near the dock as they're being fed. The little kiddos scream in excitement as they watch the carp in fascination. This is a great place for the family. There's a place to buy food that's $7 a bucket. Or enjoy a nice relaxing kayak ride in the beautiful lake. You can even rent a boat certain times of the season!

    In this majestic place you're able to feed carrots and other goodies to these wild animals. It's a great fun and informative place for the whole family. A deep sound bellows out of a bison as he looks around. He calls for his group to come. Several bison gallop towards him and it feels serene, as though you're far away from people.

    There was a light breeze as we walked through the pasture. The fluffy animals stared at us as they munched away on the green grass. It was time for us to get up close and personal with them. There's a guide who informs you on these magical animals, which makes this a great place for the whole family. It's best to book your tour online, since it can get busy.
