Lintons is a beautiful place where you can walk around see the flowers, animals and they also sell merchandise. If you get hungry, there's a small cafe to eat in. Nice place to visit.

This place is gorgeous! Lots to see and do. My son is 2 and he loved riding the train and petting the animals at the petting zoo. We didn’t purchase anything though because it’s very pricey!
