I think that this zoo is the perfect size for younger kids. It's not too large, and they have hands on experiences. The train ride is great with a lot to see. It's easy to get around with strollers, and they do have wagons to rent, if you don't want to pack your stroller. The employees are nice and helpful.... More

Took an afternoon to visit, last time was unimpressed but now, worth it! The nine year old and his big sister who is eleven both had a great time! Excellent employees and interaction with hands on with some animals... Furry armadillos, bird seed lollipops for attracting LOTS of birds and more! Will do this again next summer... Fun, and educational... More

The Gulf Breeze Zoo was a lot nicer than I expected. They did have some unusual and foreign animals to see. We were lucky that it was a pleasant day -- wasn't too hot or humid. Total time took us about an hour and a half to tour. A lot of walking. There is a train ride, which was not... More

We visited to take a much-needed break from the beach and pool while on vacation. The animals in this small zoo seem to be lovingly cared for. This zoo provided a much more intimate experience than larger zoos we have visited. The parakeet house was amazing. If you purchase the Popsicle sticks coated in birdseed, the budgies will land on...

This is a cute little zoo with some interactive exhibits. We did the train and purchased the animal feed to feed the animals.

We would go back just to feed the birds again! My kids loved them flying all over and sitting on them. They were able to pet an alligator, a turtle, a bearded dragon, feed and pet a giraffe, goats, pigs, and a peacock. It was a charming little zoo and we enjoyed it. Definitely ride the train, buy food for... More

Our family keeps annual passes to this great little zoo. For a small zoo they have a great selection of animals. Our kids also like their efforts to introduce new baby animals regularly. They may not be as big as some others but we have never been disappointed.

Great fun little zoo with interactive exhibits, my daughter loved being able to feed the giraffes. The train ride is worth the extra money and is really neat. A fun stop on the way to the beaches in Destin.

This zoo was super adorable with many well taken care of animals. I was unable to fins any that looked sickly as other reviews have said. My nieces LOVED it, especially feeding the giraffe and llamas! It was a cute experience and I will definitely be going back here! The one complain is the price! It is expensive! Would not... More
