Gulf breeze zoo is one of the best zoos I have ever been to. We have little kids and its perfect for them! You get to feed so many of the animals and get up and close to the rest! It's a little pricey but worth every penny! The train ride is a must!

Good for kids and if you want to just be acquainted with exotic animals available in the zoo and so on.

I visited the zoo while in town hoping I could take spectacular aviary shots; it proved to be frustrating because the nets, grills on the cages were in the way. though I do understand that the establishment wants to be extra safe in this particularly litigious state.

Therefore, if you come over, bring your entire family especially the kids but for the love of things sacred, please don't let them chase the roaming fowl around screaming, terrorizing the birds, those creatures get scared and it reflects your lack of parenting skills.

This is a nice little zoo that was in danger of shutting down. Especially after being devastated by one of the hurricanes that hit the area. Not sure how they are doing now, I believe they have new owners, but when I visited, they were still a nice little zoo that needs more support! I would definitely recommend a visit to this zoo!

The Gulf Breeze Zoo is a super clean small zoo. For a small zoo, it has a large variety of animals that all appear to be healthy and well cared for. There is petting section of the zoo which features both exotic and familiar domestic farm animals. It has winding shaddy walking paths and areas for children to play. In addition, for a small fee, one can ride a toggle train through the park for a closer view of the animals. I recommend going in the morning when it is cooler and the animals have just been fed - that's when the animals are most active and lots of fun to watch. I especially like thecurious chimps and the very playful lion cub.

On a recent visit with my two grandchildren to this modest zoo between Ft. Walton Beach and Pensacola, we were pleasantly surprised by the accessibility of the animals, the variety of animals for a small zoo, and the user-friendly layout and paths. It was nice on a day in February; one could see that it might be quit hot at other times of the year. Thought that the admission price was a bit higher than justified by the zoo itself, but the kids had fun. More than you might imagine when you drive by on the highway,.
