A visit to 'Gator Country wouldn't be complete without spending at least half a day at the Gatorland zoo.
Get close up to some of the 5,000 alligators in this modest (55 acre) yet clean and well run nature-themed park.
Gatorland was a working alligator farm which, with the University of Florida, is now involved in the research and the conservation of the Florida species.
Started as a road-side attraction in 1949 by cattle-rancher Owen Godwin, Gatorland has grown to be one of Orlando's most popular attractions.
For anyone wanting a break from the noise and glitz of other Orlando attractions, this low-key venue is ideal.
