I love exploring Northeast Pennsylvania and beyond, and a day of family fun is sometimes just a road trip away. Distance from Scranton: 106 miles (about 2 hours) I usually have a love/hate relationship with zoos. I love that my daughters get to see animals, learn more about them and then hopefully desire to conserve our earth and the animals’ habitats. But I hate seeing animals in cages and habitats that are too small. I was delightfully surprised when we visited Lake Tobias Wildlife Park this summer.
