It is also the last exit before the Maine Turnpike. Then you will want to get onto Route 1 North which is a left at the lights. We are about two miles up on the right. We have a 40-foot sign.

York's Wild Animal Kingdom - Hidden GemWe took our 3 year old and 2 year old twins to this zoo and amusement park last year ...twice! It was a great day. The zoo is one of the best in the Boston area. I consider this close enough to Boston to say that. We live in Revere (minutes from Boston) and got there in 50 minutes! The amusement park alone is NOT reason to go but being next to the zoo it completes the day. BE SURE NOT TO MISS THE ADORABLE SQUARE right behind the amusement park. It has seafood restaurants, a candy shop, ice cream parlors, gift shops and it's an adorable clean little square. Just passed that there is a BEAUTIFUL BEACH with a boardwalk feel. I am determined to stay there for a weekend to make the most of everything. For now we're headed back with a now 4 year old and 3 year old twins. We'll make this an annual tradition for our family for sure! A+
