Old Florida roadside citrus processing plant, huge Florida gift shop, aquarium, and zoo located in hilly region of central Florida. Loads of old timey Florida souvenirs, candies, jellies, etc. Zoo is $2.50 for adults and has the typical alligator, civet cats, monkeys, ostriches, large turtles, deer, exotic birds, etc. The zoo and aquarium are spotless as are the entire attraction.
