With a name like Reptile Gardens, I wasnt expecting much but decided to add it to our list because of our little 10 y/o reptillian-lover boy. However it was a great attraction and something I would do again. Not only did the 10 y/o LOVE IT! but the 3 girls and parents enjoyed it as well. Very beautifully maintained gardens were an attraction besides the animals. The alligator and snake shows were very informative and we all enjoyed it.

My husband and I stopped here when we had some time to kill. What a pleasure it was! Wandering through the manicured beautifully landscaped grounds and listening to the knowledgeable staff give presentations was a wonderful way to spend some time. A "don't miss" stop especially if you have children.

Anything creepy crawly can be found here! Pet a snake and learn about various reptiles. For the faint at heart, there are prairie dogs, a bald eagle, and giant tortoises.
