Lawry Park Zoo
If you can get past the bad driving then Tampa is a wonderful place to visit. It has one Florida best zoos and aquariums. The Lawry park zoo is right outside downtown and is a great place to visit with your family. Its not your normal zoo but has lots of amazing and exotic animals. Tickets start at just $24.95 for adults and $19.95. Over the years the zoo has been transformed from just a sanctuary for animals, to a place with exciting roller coasters, flume rides, and even a train. Even with all these rides around the animals are still the focal point of the park. There are sections in the park that have been separated creating an area for the animals. There is the Safari African. Where elephants, zebras, warthogs, and even rhinos call home. If you like the smaller animals than the Wallaroo station will be a place for you. Its based on the Australian plains where koala, wallabies, and cockatoos are kept. The Asian Gardens are place where the beautiful tigers, leopards, and bears are kept. You can get up rather close and personal to them. Each and every animal in the zoo is special and in its own right. No Florida zoo would be complete without a section that focuses on the animals which call Florida home. Animals here are like the Florida Bobcat and even a few alligators. The Lawry Park Zoo is a great place to go and spend the day.
