THE JACKSONVILLE ZOO AND GARDENS
A Vacation Stop For The Entire Family!
By Glenn Arnette, lll
JACKSONVILLE is the number one stop in Florida. It is not a Disney Orlando, but it offers fantastic entertainment, restaurants, shopping and more. Hotels and resorts are reasonable and centrally located to all of the many things you find to do.
There is no question that the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is first class and renound throughout the country. With over 1400 rare and exotic animals and 100 varieties of plants, this Zoo offers something for everyone. It has the only walking safari in Northeast Florida and as a true family adventure, you will be entertained for hours. There is nothing more exciting than the Range of the Jaguar, the Giraffe Overlook and the Savanna Blooms garden.
Imagine the fun on the Zoo Train Ride or the exciting Carousel Ride followed by a visit to Stingray Bay. Now that is something different. They have special events throughout the year and April seems to be a great time to visit. On April 3 they have the organized Garden Tour followed by April 10 with the Teddy Bear Affair and finally the EXZOOBERATION on April 17. There is something going on each and every day. Now with their Summer Hours in effect until September, you will find the Zoo open daily from 9 AM – 5 PM daily 363 days of the years. On Saturday, Sunday and Holidays they are opened until 6 PM.
There is nothing like a planned party or event at the Zoo, From Corporate meetings to a personal birthday party, the Zoo and animals are ready to be of service. Never worry about the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens taking care of their animals. This is no circus, this is the real thing!
Congratulations on being a major part of the Jacksonville entertainment. There is no better way to enjoy America’s largest city in land than a visit to the ZOO. It is clean, great staff and certainly a quality visit.
