Nothing is as exciting as coming face to face with a wild animal, and the American alligator is one creature that doesn’t disappoint. Visit the zoo and you’re sure to see a variety of cool animals, but when you’re ready to roll up your sleeves for an interactive experience with a gator, the Florida Everglades is the place to be. Where can you hold a baby alligator in Florida? Here’s what a day trip to Everglades Holiday Park has to offer adventurous families.

Kids can’t get enough of the critters at Everglades Holiday Park. Even the little ones enjoy the gators up close and personal, and boy, do they grin from ear to ear!
Take an Exciting Airboat Ride Through the River of Grass
Encountering animals in the Everglades is always an adventure, and an hour-long airboat ride is the best way to get out there to experience the wetlands. Of course, you can’t hold all of the alligators in the Everglades, but you sure can see some extraordinary sights on a narrated tour. Captains at Everglades Holiday Park grew up in the Everglades and know exactly where to take the boats to see the most spectacular sights. In cool weather, wildlife is most active, and thrill-seeking families enjoy watching turtles, snakes and all kinds of tropical birds going about their business in the Everglades.
Meet the Gator Boys From Animal Planet’s Hit Show
After your airboat tour concludes, you’ll be taken back to the park where you’ll enjoy a complementary live alligator presentation featuring the Gator Boys from Animal Planet. These guys and gals know their stuff, and delight crowds with entertaining facts, funny jokes and a few daring tricks. Alligators used in the show were rescued from backyards, swimming pools and other residential areas throughout South Florida, and the Gator Boys are proud to feature some of their favorites. Presentations are family-friendly, providing a great way to expose the kids to important concepts like preservation, conservation and the larger Everglades ecosystem.Why stand around at the zoo when the Everglades puts you face to face with the most exciting wildlife Florida has to offer?
