Took my parents here when they came to visit me in Florida because, well, there weren't a ton of other options. They're not beach people, I loathe malls & unnecessary shopping and we'd already visited all the other parks and museums in the immediate area. We had a delightfully satirical yet extremely knowledgable tram tour guide that took us on... More

Loved all the plants and birds, relaxing way to enjoy nature. The old trees were amazing, Would have loved to buy some plants, but couldn't get them back to MN.

We are thrilled that you had such a great visit and we thank you for writing such a great review. I guess since you could not take Florida back to MN with you, you will just have to come back to Florida to visit again! More

My favorite are the boiled peanuts and amazing fresh OJ. I used to go here on field trips. I love the nostalgia not much has changed. They have really old trees (champion trees) and rootbeer plants. Great for kids to seniors.

Beautiful gardens and attractions for the family. Had a wonderful time. Flamingos were beautiful and the bird aviary was awesome. So many beautiful birds to enjoy especially the gardens.

We visited here in July with our teen/young adult children and all of us found it very enjoyable. There were flamingos (obviously!) but also other birds, animals and reptiles to see. We also enjoyed the little tram ride where you learn about the various types of trees and vegetation found on the property.

There are all sorts of animals - Flamingos, peacocks, reptiles. There are shows to tell you about the different animals. There is a mini-outside snack bar. Take the tram. Good holiday decorations in December.

Flamingo Gardens has it all, the park, the botanical gardens, the zoo, the wildlife preserve, the historical house, lovely vistas and even a nice place to get married!! We miss the play fruit packing facility that our children loved when they were little, but no place is perfect.

Thank you so much for your lovely review on TripAdvisor. We are constantly updating our facilities and the fruit packing area was a little obsolete, but such is progress. We are so glad that your family has had such a good time here in the past and we hope to see you again in the future. More

When my daughter heard you could "feed" the flamingos, this became a must-see during our vacation. Upon entry, I must admit I was a bit worried...the general appearance from the driveway was a little run down, so I wasn't sure what to expect that that point. Upon entry we headed straight to the Flamingo pond and had a great time... More

Check out their website for more information. There's a lot to see here. You'll spend about 2-hrs seeing Florida's wildlife. There's a snack bar, a small gift shop. A really fun train ride.
