Been many years since I last was inside the door's of Reptile Garden. You need to plan a lot of open time to see it all, like the snake show to the alligators show. Lots of flowers and rocks in between the buildings and walk ways. If you like spiders or snakes and many more fun and interesting exhibits to take in all the beauty of nature. The gift shop is not a disappointment its full of everything you need for your self or many friends. Check this great place out if you have plenty of time, this is a good family outing and also a place you can bring your service dog.
This is a really fun place! There is no shortage of reptiles here! Admission is reasonable, and they're season passes, so revisits are free in a certain time period. The shows are well done. This is a great place to take kids; I have a pretty big family so I would know! Highly recommend! 👍
