By Lake Monroe in Sanford is the Central Florida Zoo. This zoo is a fun way to get out of the house and spend some time with family, friends and loved ones. The Central Florida Zoo has added several attractions other than the various animals, reptiles and birds that you will find at most zoo's. These attractions are The Wharton-Smith Tropical Splash Grounds, ZOOm Air Adventur Park and Battlefield Live Orlando Laser Tag. You will also find the little Florida Coastline Railroad, a carousel, a petting zoo area, keeper chats and educational classes at the zoo.

Central Florida zoo butterfly GardenOne thing you do not want to miss out is the Butterfly garden. Yes, you read that right, the butterfly garden. It does not take long to walk through it, but it is an experience that will relax you and stun you with beauty. When you walk through the garden, you will see a variety of beautiful flowers and foliage, then you will smell the different flowers as you walk. Around the flowers and foliage fly many different species of butterflies, of different shapes and colors. It is a very neat experience. Enjoy the simple things of life.


For children, the petting zoo, named Animal Adventure Children Zoo, inside of the Central Florida Zoo is a must. Inside the gift shop you can make a donation of a dollar to get a cup of animal food and then go pet and feed the animals they have there, including, Zebu, Llama, Barbados Sheep, Boer Goats and Domestic Turkey.


We suggest taking a trip to The Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens in Seminole County and follow it up with a cruise on the St. John's River with The Rivership Romance.
