As most of you already know, Sanford has its own Zoo, the Central Florida Zoo. Located right off exit 104 from I-4, the zoo entrance faces beautiful Lake Monroe and is surrounded by a preserve. If you are in the area you should definitely check out the Zoo. I had previously mentioned the zoo because of the many events it offers to its visitors (including the popular Zoo Boo Bash for Halloween and the Fiesta del Coqui).
The Central Florida zoo doesn’t only offer you and your family to admire and learn about its beautiful animals (many of them endangered) but also a train, carousel and water splash park for the kids and the new zip lining adventure that lets you explore the world from above. Prices for ZOOmAir start at $20. I have not yet tried ZOOmAir yet but can’t wait to do it soon! Today I just took pictures of the zip lines and “tree stations”…
More about the Zoo will follow soon! Definitely check out their web site for more information about upcoming events, educational programs, the annual membership ($45 single, $70 family) or Adopt an Animal Program.
