Feed the Birds at Everglades Wonder Gardens 11/365
Everglades Wonder Gardens is located right in the heart of downtown Bonita Springs, Florida. It is a tourist attraction with wildlife, an eighty year old botanical jungle and butterfly gardens. We have been to the Wonder Gardens many times but recently there has been changes. They now offer food for almost every animal and birds that are on the property. The kids just love feeding the animals. For $5.00 we got turtle, fish, flamingo, alligator, and bird food. It really made the whole experience for the kids. They just loved feeding the flamingos. Where else in Southwest Florida can kids feed flamingos? It’s an amazing experience and besides being one of the fun things to do in town it teaches kids to care gently for the animals.
The Everglades Wonder Gardens also is selling different plants and have a cute gift shop. The Everglades Wonder Gardens is open everyday from 9:00 am- 5:00 pm. Admission is Adults 13-64 =$12 Seniors (65+) = $10 Children 3-12 = $7 Under 3 is free. The also offer a yearly admission which prices vary.
There are a few restaurants nearby, like Survey Café and Heaven’s Shakes so you can have lunch or get a snake and make a day of it.
