This summer we got the Adventure Pass and I am glad we did. It was amazing to check out 7 different attractions for one price. One of our favorite attractions on the pass was the Flamingo Gardens. We have been there 3 times this summer and the kids ask to go back every weekend. Here are some of the things we love about this awesome place:
Besides the gorgeous flamingos this place has bunch of other animals and birds too. We LOVE the beautiful peacocks running around and if you are lucky they will stop and pose for pictures. Their Koi pond is filled with some beautiful fish that you can feed. Just remember to take some quarters for the fish food. There are plenty of iguanas and lizards around too. They also have Florida Panthers, an alligator and a Black Bear.
The Tram Ride:
This tram ride is pretty incredible. They take you on a tour of the 42 acre property and you see a bunch of different trees and plants. My favorites are the mango tress. The tram drivers do an excellent job of pointing out different wildlife and have great knowledge of the plants and trees. Keep and eye out for huge iguanas as they drive by the water. The best part of the tram ride is that it is included in the ticket price.
If you are interested in looking at birds up and close this is the place to do it. They have so many different variety of birds and you could spend a lot of time watching them. Just watch out for some….umm bird poop!
One of our visits there was their back to school event and the kids had a blast. They had a bunch of water slides, pony rides, games, food and music. I think this is partly why the kids want to go there every weekend! Click here to check out their website.
