It is an interesting place to take out-of-town guests for a day away from the beach. I would not count it as something that cannot be missed, though.

We spent part a day visiting the zoo while vacationing in Pensacola Beach area. Our daughter really enjoyed the train ride and seeing all the different animals.

We drove from Miramar Beach to visit the zoo since we were all sunburned from the beach. We really enjoyed feeding the small birds with the feed sticks we bought at the entrance. We also enjoyed feeding the pets at the petting zoo out of a cup you can buy at the entrance. There are several meters that you can... More

We took our niece there when she visited last. She had so much. We enjoyed the train ride and all the animals especially the bird aviary. The hamburgers were great too. We will definitely be back!!!

Loved this place! Loved feeding the giraffe and buddies! Went early but it was hot! People who worked there are friendly and helpful! The kids also loved the train ride as well as getting a safari hat with the kids meal!

We went to this zoo while visiting my daughter in Pensacola. It is a nice little zoo with plenty of shade for the hot days of the Florida summer. You can feed all kinds of animals, including giraffes (yes big, tall giraffes) for a very small fee. Perfect for young kids. All of the young'uns that I saw were having... More

We had a wonderful experience at the zoo. It is not overly crowded and you get to be up close and personal to the animals. My favorite part was hand feeding the giraffes!

What a great zoo! Very clean and the animals have nice exhibits. Neat train ride that the kids loved. Make sure you get the food to feed the birds. Super friendly staff! I had my grands that are 5-14 years old and they all had a great time.

The Zoo is a nice size, make sure you take the train ride, as you will see different animals up-close. I suggest you pay a little extra and get the food to feed the birds and animals. We had a great time and it really is beautiful.
