If you are like me, and like the zoo experience but prefer a quieter, less crowded setting, than Wild Florida is your place. We like to visit during gator week in May, when admission is free!
This park is set up like a zoo or a wildlife refuge. They have tons of local Florida wildlife as well as animals from around the world. (This is the only place I’ve ever seen a zedonk or a zorse.)
Among out favorite activities are feeding a white tailed deer little pieces of corn, getting up close to peacocks and peahens, talking to the friendly Macaw, and visiting the bird aviary- where we held a bird!
They also have a gator shows, one where a person does a variety of tricks with a huge alligator, and one where they feed the gators and crocodiles. There are restrooms, refreshments, and a playground.
And of course air boat rides (but those come at a price of course).The whole park takes about 2 hours to walk through and my children and myself really enjoy ourselves every time.
