This is a great attraction for families with kids and even friends who are looking for a different kind of adventure. The St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Zoological Park features an array of wildlife species from animals that hail from Madagascar, exotic birds, komodo dragon and Florida’s native reptiles just to name a few. However, what really separates this zoo from other zoos is its attraction dubbed as Crocodile Crossing. This is an aerial obstacle course and those who are daring enough zip lines through courses with live alligators below them, lemurs within an arm’s length and birds within eye-level.

Plus, the museum itself is an architectural gem. Highly recommended to experience the true history that St. Augustine has to offer. Visit:
