If the mouse is a little too tame for your family, take a walk on the wild side at Orlando's Gatorland park. Known as the "alligator capital of the world," this reptile haven began as a roadside attraction in the '40s. Now, the 110-acre nature conservatory is home to the world's largest collection of giant white alligators and Gator Gully Splash Park.
For extra excitement, sign up for a Gatorland adventure tour. You can be a trainer for a day, go on a nighttime tour of the breeding marsh or face your fears inside the Gator Wrestlin' Arena. This park is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit Gatorland's website for directions and ticket discounts!
