Everglades Wonder Gardens

Everglades Wonder Gardens Review

Opened in 1936 and one of the first attractions of its kind in the state, this garden captures the beauty of untamed Florida. The old-fashioned, rather cramped zoological gardens have Florida panthers, black bears, crocodiles and alligators, tame Florida deer, flamingos, otters, and birds. There's also a funky natural history museum. Tours, which include otter and alligator feedings, run continuously, the last starting at 4:15. The swinging bridge over the alligator pit is a real thrill.
