Went on a rainy day and they were closed for weather. Worth calling ahead if you're making a detour to stop in. Their answering machine was updated with the closure for weather with the date. Didn't get to visit the gators but their alligator gate is pretty cool!

Alligator Alley is home to some of the biggest alligators I have ever seen. There is a cool deck so you can walk over the marsh and see them in a natural can watch staff feed them, and you can even hold an alligator. Nice gift shop and you can buy food to feed the gators. 10 dollars for adults, 8 for kids, and they do offer military discounts.

Just went to Alligator Alley and it was great. The place is very well laid out and the gators are easily visible. You can feed them little nuggets or watch the organized feeding, where staff provides the gators with chunks of feral pig. Kids can hold smaller alligators as well.
