Paca Pride is located on the Mountain Loop Highway and offers easy access to beautiful hikes and daytrips.
By now you've likely stayed at a lot of hotels and vacation rentals that were mostly just a comfortable place to be, but Paca Pride is a place to do. Even if you don't want to hike, kayak, or explore, a day on this well-run farm is fascinating and fun. The friendly alpacas are rescues, all males who were deemed unsuitable as breeding stock, but they and the chickens play an important role in the "land first" farm operations.
Interested in seeing it for yourself? You don't have to schedule a stay. Paca Pride is open 10am-5pm every day and the gift shop alone is worth the visit. Grab some high-quality alpaca socks, hats, and blankets plus some fresh eggs and local honey.
Even if you never pictured yourself staying on a farm, you'll want to by the time you leave.
