ahead. There’s also many restaurants and cafes here but make sure you make a stop at pearl smokehouse. Why you ask well the fried Gator Nuggets are out of
this world! Everybody raves about them. For an

go to the alligator breeding marsh or a behind-the-scenes tour. It’s definitely
an up-close-and-personal animal encounter. After watching the alligator

September so pack a reusable rain poncho. Tips 6: Gatorland is open from
10:00 to 5:00 p.m. they also offer a night viewing. Gator eyes shine when you are in the the dark with flashlights and a few hot dogs and as you throw the hot dogs in the water and flash your flashlights you’ll see some glowing
eyeballs coming back at you. All these adventures are available for an extra
