I visited the zoo at Boyett's Grove. This is a very low key family friendly place - it has a relaxed country feel to it. It was a nice little petting zoo type attraction -- well worth the small admission fee and charge for a bag of food. There were many types of animals to feed and look at. They... More

We visited on a Blazing Friday Afternoon. The eclectic interior of the shop took me back to my childhood travels with my parents & stopping at various tourist locations across the country. We really enjoyed seeing, petting & feeding all the animals. We even got in a game of mini golf while the afternoon downpour happened. If you like the... More

I went here with my daughter. There were interesting artifacts. We walked around waiting for the rain to cease, but it didnt. Will go back again.

Kids love being able to get up close to feed the animals. Loved the monkey that lowers the basket for food and pulls it back up.

Felt like I fell back into the 1960's and 1970's. Where else can you find citrus, antiques, zoo animals, dinosaur exhibits, and miniature golf? Some of the animals had no water and giving them lettuce, bread, and popcorn to eat as you traversed down the paths felt weird. Still, the animals were very friendly. The place seemed deserted. Weird cowboy... More

We took our grandkids here this past weekend, and we stayed most of the day. There were a lot of neat stuff to look at, and you can feed the wild animals by hand, and play a game of miniature golf, and go through the dinosaur cave, eat yummy ice cream, and dig for fossils and gems. The only negative... More

We are Floridians and live relatively close to Boyett's. There are few attractions remaining in Florida that have retained their rustic "cracker" charm but Boyett's is still super-cool old-school Florida. Many of the animals are obviously rescued from some dismal prior life and all of them are in clean, comfortable habitats. There are lots of cool animals and many of... More

Disgusting.. The animals look to be in terrible contition... cages/enclosures were filthy..no food... no water.. Animals should not be forced to live in those conditions. There is an immediate need for a thorough Health inspection.. for the sake of the animals and for the protection of all humans that happen to get suckered into visiting . . The walkways are... More

I can't believe that anyone would give this place even a fair review. The miniature horses and the donkeys coats are filthy and severely matted. They have sores and are severely depressed. The alligators area is much too small for him and just a pool of mud! If they have food, it consists of bread and popcorn! It's a horrible... More
