I visited Grandfather Mountain with my 3 daughters. We had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly. The young man who was providing enrichment for the animals was especially knowledgeable and patient as my children asked lots of questions. My daughter asked to adopt "Jane" as a result of our visit and the information she received. Grandfather is a beautiful place and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
