Fodor's Review

A perennial favorite with tour-bus operators, this family-run park has an arena, seating up to 300 for shows with alligator wrestling. Before and after, get a closer look at both alligators and crocodiles on Gator Island, follow a jungle trail, walk through a small wildlife museum, or climb aboard an airboat for a 40-minute ride on the River of Grass (included in admission). There's also a restaurant, gift shop, and an observation platform looking out over the Glades.

Smaller, private airboats can be chartered for tours lasting 40 minutes to 2 hours. Check online for coupons.
