A visit to cozy Children’s Fairyland is like stepping into a storybook. The whimsical park features close to 40 storybook sets, kid-size rides, friendly animals, and 10 acres of gardens that are especially exciting for those under age 8. The storybook sets, which were designed by a local architect, include, The Old Lady in the Shoe, Jack & Jill Hill and an Alice in Wonderland tunnel. Live rabbits and guinea pigs live in Peter Rabbit’s Garden. There’s also a mini Ferris wheel that resembles a spider’s web and a carousel. When kids get hungry, head over to Johnny Appleseed Café, which serves kid-pleasers such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, popcorn, pretzels and hamburgers.
