Sarasota Jungle Gardens

Published on July 10, 2017 by cgwhiteside

Sarasota Jungle Gardens has been a tourist attraction in Sarasota, Florida since 1936. Once described as an "impenetrable swamp," this former banana grove was converted into a beautiful botanical garden and bird and animal sanctuary that has emerged as one of the oldest continuously operating tourist attractions in Florida.  A wide variety of birds and animals include Florida’s noted parrots, pink flamingos, crocodiles, lemurs, snakes and more. All within 10 acres of lush, tropical landscaping connected by winding jungle trails. It’s one of the only places you can walk up to and feed free roaming flamingos.  The bird and reptile shows are as educational as they are entertaining and for the youngest visitors  - be sure to check the daily schedule.  Food and gifts and a playground are available on-site.  Be sure to check local guides and their website for discount coupons.

Meet The Author
Chip is a software Architecture Manager and Miao is a Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway . We have lived in Sarasota since 1990; we have traveled to Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and much of the United States and consider Sarasota to be one of the best places in the world. We have put a lot of love and effort into this unit and vacation there ourselves, our hope is that you enjoy it as much as we do. Miao and Chip purchased this condo in 2015. When we were looking for condos on Siesta Key, this one had it all! There is nothing like sitting by the heated pool, watching the boat traffic going up and down the bay. The fishing from the dock is fantastic - you can catch a wide variety of what the bay has to offer - Redfish, Snook, Snapper, Flounder, Ladyfish, etc. It has a boat basin for our boat when we stay there and the beach is just across the street. In the village, there are an abundance of good restaurants and shopping. In Sarasota, you can visit the Ringling Museums, Ca' d'Zan, Selby Gardens, take in shows at the Van Wezel, Sarasota Opera House, or one of the local theaters.
