Between grocery store runs and extra-curricular activities, the weekends are usually a time for families to break away from the weekday routines and do something fun together. But with overcrowded theme parks and summer events only making up for a few hours of entertainment, it can be hard to find something to do that won't leave you frustrated or have your kids wanting to do more. If you're debating on whether you should commit to driving out to our place, here are a few reasons why you and your family won't regret the trip (and will love the adventure).
From their cheeky grin to relatable, sleepy behavior, everyone has a bit of sloth in them, which makes them one of the most relatable and loved animals. At Wild Florida, we're lucky to have a whole family of two-toed sloths. Since people have found out that we have sloths in our Gator and Wildlife Park, they've always asked, "Can I please hold one?" And now... you can!
When we opened our doors in 2010, we wanted to provide an unforgettable Everglades experience that promotes a connection with animals while inspiring education and conservation. Despite being best known for exciting Everglades airboat tours, we opened our Gator and Wildlife Park as a way for people to learn about exotic animals found across the world along with educating them on native animals they might've seen in their backyard. On the blog, learn about our enriching and interactive animal encounters and exhibits and the handful of animals you'll be able to pet when you visit.
From storm drains to golf courses, we've all seen alligators in weird places on the news and, for some of you, probably in your own backyard. But... what about getting up close to them in a fun and safe way? This year, we've added a new and long awaited experience here at Wild Florida... a gator encounter! On the blog, we'll go over four things that could happen during your Gator Encounter at our place.
