Everglades Alligator Farm, Homestead

4.1
#1 of 7 in Parks in Homestead
Home to more than 2,000 individual alligators, Everglades Alligator Farm gives visitors the opportunity to see the creatures in their natural habitat and view the working processes of the farm itself. The facility operates as a provider for other institutions, hatching and raising alligators in an ethical way and providing viable eggs to other farms. Wander the park's trails and paths to get a glimpse of the alligator-raising process in action, or sit in on one of the wildlife shows that include snakes and other Florida animals. If you're lucky, you'll even get to watch a live alligator feeding. One of the mainstays of any visit and quintessential Florida activity is hopping on an airboat and zipping through the lush, watery landscape of the Everglades. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Homestead holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Everglades Alligator Farm and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We had a one night stop over in the Miami area before our scheduled lobster trip in the Florida Keys and decided this place would be a fun stopover after driving the whole day. I must say Everglades Alligator Farm did not disappoint! The shows were nice, like a scaled back version of gator land. The real fun began when we went on the airboat ride. Luke was an awesome guide! We sat in the front row and had amazing time. We got absolutely soaked! We saw several animals while on the trip including gators, birds, and wild iguanas. I highly recommend this place. We initially wanted to do the animal feeding but since we had no clue what time we would arrive, we could not make an online reservation. So if you want to do that, make sure you book in advance. I will definitely visit here again in the future for more fun and experiences. Thanks Everglades Alligator Farm and see you guys soon!
  • Moses our parking attendant was awesome! He helped our large group of 40 enter the parking structure with ease. His customer service was beyond what we expected. He was very nice and professional and welcoming. He went out of his way to help us and we really appreciated the warm welcome and service. Go here!! Great staff!!
