We stopped in not expecting too much but were presently surprised and we had a lot of fun. Yes its small but there is plenty to do. I'd say its a half day event.

We spent Christmas Eve Day at the zoo, and enjoyed it immensely. Unlike bigger zoos, you can get close to the animals and interact with staff. We go every year, and we are never disappointed.

Going here for my family is a bit expensive. For five people including tax and the unlimited train rides is over 100.00 BUT... I feel it is well worth it. The kids loved going and having the unlimited train ride pass was a great idea. We rode many times and sat in different spots. Every ride they saw something different... More

We went to the Gulf Breeze Zoo on a sunny morning in December. The zoo is laid out nicely and it includes a large variety of animals. There are lions and tigers and bears (oh my) and a nice variety of African animals. There is a train that conducts a guided excursion to a more remote area of the zoo.... More

I am from Atlanta and have been to the Zoo there many times, but I have to admit I like this zoo more. It is much more intimate. You can get up close and personal with animals. Features a large petting zoo area, including the giraffes, and parakeets. Love the train ride around the park to see other animals. Highly... More

We live in the area and visit this zoo at least once a month. It is much more hands on and relaxed than any zoo I have attended. We made a trip to New Orleans specifically to visit the New Orleans Zoo and was terribly disappointed because it didn't compare to the Gulf Breeze Zoo! Highly recommend to anyone in... More

Feeding the animals is always so fun here! Especially the little birds. The zoo has a great little layout and it's very family friendly!

By far this is one of the best zoo's that I have ever been too. The Zoo ain't real big but you get close to the animals. Lots of animals that you can feed. A nice little train ride. A definite thing to do with a family when visiting the area. All my children from the ages of 8-20 had... More

Close to the beach and a great place to spend an afternoon. Not a huge zoo by major city standards but well laid out, clean and interesting.
