Congratulations to our bracket winner--Animal Adventure Park!

Animal Adventure Park

We asked you to choose a winner among 16 of our top New York State attractions in the third annual I LOVE NEW YORK Bracket. After four rounds and thousands of votes, Animal Adventure Park just outside of Binghamton -- home of the world-famous April the Giraffe and her baby Taj -- came out on top, joining 2016 winner Central Park and 2017 winner Boldt Castle. Thanks to everyone who voted and showed some love for New York State!

Here's what people are saying about Animal Adventure Park... 

"Such a beautiful place and the animals are well cared for and loved! What an awesome place to take the family, and it's an 'adventure' for any age." - Michele D, Facebook

"Animal Adventure Park changed my life, brought new friends to my days and nights, and reminded me how important it is that we take care of our fellow planet-dwellers, all of them. #IspentMarchwaitingforApril" - Elaine D, Facebook

"I changed my vacay plans last year from Tennessee, to New York, just to see Animal Adventure Park, and April and family. You guys got this...I am betting." - Kelli W, Facebook

In addition to being home to some of the world's most famous giraffes, Animal Adventure Park has more than 200 other animals from more than 80 different species from around the world, including African lions, Arctic wolves, and American alligators. Your family will love feeding giraffes, monkeys, turtles, and other creatures -- and they can learn even more about their new animal friends during the park’s Zookeeper Chats.
