Dinosaur. Boyett's Grove - Florida Citrus Attraction

Boyett's Grove is an eclectic family attraction; "Old Florida" at its finest. Many attractions have become commercialized over the years, but this one has retained the charm and quirkiness of roadside attractions of the 1950s and '60s. There's a gift shop, vintage arcade, ice cream, large zoo, Dinosaur Cave, and historic memorabilia. You may purchase food for the animals at an additional cost, which I recommend. Visitors may also observe citrus being packed at certain times of the year. The owners are currently working toward the opening of a dinosaur-themed mini golf course and are refurbishing a large aquarium in the pirate area. Our family had a lot of fun at this attraction and we would visit again. [Mandy S., 09/07/2014]

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. This place has been around since who-knows-when.
