We had a great time at Bee City -- especially loved the aviary building. We had done bird feeding before, but never like this! Easily our favorite part. It turned into at least a 2 hour stop for us (with a 6 y.o. in tow) -- thumbs up all around.

Very cool. Feeding the monkeys and lemurs was the best! Only a few bee hives in the "city," but is very well worth the trip.

Worth its weight in gooey glistening gold. The ring-tailed lemurs eagerly pushed each other out of the way for the little Cheerio delights. The brown lemurs may even be sweeter than the honey produced by the 1.2 million resident bees and will gently eat right out of your hand. While the llamas big and small are friendly and adorable, watch out, they really do spit...a lot!

As for the gift shop, the owner would not give us a discount on anything no matter how much we bought, however, we were able to buy 10 souvenirs for the low price of $28 so maybe we are just the ones who are in fact cheap. With 2 adults and $14 we had an hour of exotic animal feeding fun and had we had more time could have spent another 2 hours learning about reptiles and bees. Bring a class and you can produce your own honey!

Hand-feed ringtail lemurs! They also have an aggressive llama that's hilarious (at a distance). Try the BBQ sandwich (cheap!) and hang out with the monkeys!!!!

Bee City

Bee City is a wonderful place to spend three hours with small kids. The cafe is awesome. Really nice people that run the store, restaurant, etc. Couldn't be happier and only ran me $35 for three entry fees, three meals, and two jugs of honey.
