Florida is famous for its alligator population, and Gatorland in Orlando is a good place to get an up-close-and-personal experience. The park is home to thousands of alligators and crocodiles, as well as a breeding marsh with boardwalk and observation tower, reptile shows, an aviary, petting zoo, swamp walk, and educational programs. Gatorland has several restaurants, and even offers a gluten-free menu. Visitors can enjoy the whole park at a leisurely pace in about four hours.
