The National Tiger Sanctuary in Chestnutridge, Missouri, just outside of Branson, is home to exotic tigers with personality. All of the tigers have names and each has a favorite pastime, such as playing hide-and-seek or swimming. Families who visit the sanctuary can meet and learn about each tiger, with the chance to feed them, too, on a variety of tours. Teens will surely love the 4×4 Off-Road Eco Tours, which take guests through the natural beauty of the Ozarks.
The National Tiger Sanctuary is open Wednesday through Sunday, with tours at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. daily. Tour prices vary.
