When you’re out and about, it’s usually a good idea to avoid alligators. That isn’t the case at Alligator Alley, though. Visitors are encouraged to look at, feed, and even touch the gators at this alligator farm. With over 450 gators to view and interact with, you will have an experience to remember at Alligator Alley.
Viewing the Gators
When you arrive at Alligator Alley, head over to the elevated viewing platform and look at the gators down below. You will be amazed at the assortment of gators you can see from your perch up above. Some will be mere hatchlings, while others will be mature adults. This is one of the few places where you can see alligators at different stages of the life cycle.
After you get a good look, move along the nature walk and view the alligators as they rest, relax, and interact in their natural habitat. You will also see owls, bull frogs, ospreys, and turtles as you navigate the nature walk. It is amazing how close these animals are to the gators.
Get a Little Closer
After your walk, you’ll be ready to get a little closer to the gators. Then, it’s time to move inside to the gator station, where you can feed and hold the gators. Don’t worry; the team won’t put an adult gator in your arms. You will hold a baby gator at the gator station.
Getting into the Park
The park is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week and hosts live feedings at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 4 p.m. Adults get in for $12, kids aged 4-12 and seniors get in for $10, and toddlers 3 and under get in for free. If you want to feed the gators, alligator chow costs $4.
Your trip to Alligator Alley will be a hair-raising experience. You will get goose bumps when you see the alligators up close and personal. You will also get goose bumps at McKenzie Motors in Milton, Florida, but for a different reason. You will get goose bumps due to all of the cool features that these vehicles offer. If you’re ready to fall in love with a car, it’s time to go to the dealership and look around.
