Absolutely loaded with tourist trap stuff, but my visitors always want to go back. The kids will love it and there is a huge Christmas area - things you could not imagine.

Went twice to unlimited fish fry. I think they said it was bassa, anyway it was superb. Despite this being huge, full to the rim restaurant, every piece of fish was done perfectly.

Relic like cages for the animals, the grounds and "mall" haven't been upgraded and are stuck in another era. Like old football players who stay one season too long, this place lost its charm a long time ago and should have been closed or upgraded to modern standards.

We went here while on vacation with our kids, who are 3 and 4 years old. There were a lot of things to check out in the huge gift shop, but the highlight of our trip was the nature park. There were a lot of animals that we don't often see at other places. The food at the restaurant was... More

Touristy attraction with a petting zoo and natural water park for children. Lots of varieties of shells to choose from and museum included. Interesting place to visit for lunch or later. Easy to find on Route 41 in North Fort Myers. Fun for all!
