• St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Crocodile Crossing - St. Augustine, Florida

      Roadtrip Attraction
      For more than a century, St. Augustine Alligator Farm has entertained and educated visitors with its extensive collection of alligators, crocodiles, turtles, snakes and other exotic animals. It is the only facility in the world exhibiting all 23 known species of crocodilian. And now there's another compelling reason to visit: Crocodile Crossing, a 90-minute zipline adventure course that really does enable you to zip over the crocodiles, alligators and other specimens. Special shows are held several times daily, and there are special events available, including Zoo Nights for youngsters.

      If you go:
      Keep an eye out for the albino alligator, and don't miss the special exhibit of Gomek, the now deceased 17-foot gator that once made its home here. Note that while cameras and phones are allowed in the zoo itself, nothing with a battery is permitted on the ziplines, as batteries are fatal to the reptiles if swallowed.
