One of the advantages of buying one of the Pebble Creek homes for sale is the community’s location in the Phoenix metropolitan area in the town of Goodyear. Given its proximity to such a large urban metropolis, Pebble Creek is close to many fun activities that come with such a location and is certainly one of the reasons that it has earned a reputation as being one of the most desirable retirement destinations in Arizona. One of the more recognizable and popular places retirees can visit is the Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium—only minutes from the community. The Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium covers 215 acres and is located in Litchfield Park, Arizona, just a mere 8 miles from Pebble Creek.
The zoo has the largest collection of exotic animals in the State of Arizona, but its specialty is in keeping African and South American animals. A couple of the amusement rides are a boat that takes visitors through its Australian habitat, and a half-mile safari train that travels through its 15-acre African habitat. The Safari Park features an African lion habitat, a spider monkey, spotted hyena, and numerous African birds among other creatures. The Zoo and Safari Park are home to more than 6,000 individual animals, offering feeding stations, free animal shows, and the chance to get close to some remarkable animals.
Since 2008, Wildlife World has also had a four-building aquarium with a tank that holds a total volume of 180,000 gallons, filled with hundreds of varieties of fish, invertebrates, amphibians, and even reptiles. Its South Pacific Reef tank also features Arizona’s longest acrylic tunnel. In addition, visitors can get up close with some of its water life, such as at the aquarium’s Predators Exhibit, which has a stingray touch tank and crocodile monitor tunnel.
Both the zoo and the aquarium are open every day of the year, including holidays, and being located only minutes from Pebble Creek homes for sale, it’s quite convenient to visit.
