Uncle Sandy's Macaw Bird Park

Macaws, peacocks, emus. So colorful. It's a parrot rescue and sanctuary that you can walk through for $5.

We enjoy any attraction whose hand-painted signs warn that you could be bitten by its occupants. Uncle Sandy died in 2013, but a nonprofit group keeps his dream alive.
