    »Minnesota Zoo

    Spread across about 500 acres, natural habitat is the emphasis in this vast zoo. The animals are here but they often have wide-open spaces in which to roam, so be patient when looking for them. To aid in the spotting of animals, visitors may ride an overhead monorail. Five themed trails lead visitors around. The Minnesota Trail focuses on animals native to the state while the Tropics Trail includes encounters with Komodo dragons, leopards and gibbons. The Northern Trail features wolves, moose, musk oxen, Siberian Tigers and wild Asian horses. An IMAX theater is also on site.

Regular services and ceremonies are held by the church to bring together the community in the neighborhood areas. This little church seats only 70 people and is mostly used for wedding purposes. However, smaller services are still conducted here. The services which have a large attendance are carried out at a different room which was built in the later years.
