“A Tram Ride thru Gardens and Tour of a Historic home”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Not to exciting, but a nice relaxing day after sightseeing. There are gardens and a historic home to tour. One of the gardens does look like the 'everglades', so if you don't get to the everglades this would be nice to walk thru. This place is pretty low key...like going to someone's back yard.

“Great Place to Spend a Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

This was part of a cruise shore excursion. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. The place is in very nice condition. We took the tram ride and the driver was extremely knowledgeable. There are plenty of plant exhibits along with animals (panthers, flamingos, free-roaming peacocks, etc. Very educational and well-done. We wish we had more time to spend there!

“Old Style Florida Tourist Attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

First, Flamingo Gardens is a great place that's been around for over 40 years. The kids can enjoy the animals and birds. The gardens are a quiet place to walk or set and just be with nature. They have lots of exhibits and keep injured animals. They have a small animal show with 3 or 4 different animals. You can see Peacocks, Flamingos, Gators, Otters and lots more. They have a small snack area by the flamingos and the indoor shop has something for everyone. When it's cooler is the best time to go, Oct-Apr. Summer time is hot and it's S FL so plan on sweating even in the shade! They have been running some Groupons so look for discounts. Some have complained about the high admission fee, $18 per person, as ludicrous. Yes, that seem pricey, but they get NO government hand outs for feeds and caring for all the animals. It's a nice look at how the FL tourist parks were before Disney and the almost $100 a day that you drop there. It's about the way I remember it as a kid, only the trees are bigger and they have way more animals and birds.
