Another first for our family was visiting the Naples Zoo in Naples, Florida. Of course, everything we did in Florida was a “first” for our boys and myself as we had never been to Florida before. My husband had been to Florida a couple times years before we were married.


The Paradise Coast had provided us with tickets to the Naples Zoo and so we made a point to visit it. Opinions are my own, of course. I’ll provide a link to both places at the end of this post.


Visiting the Naples Zoo in Florida


Florida is SO different from Ohio – no kidding, right? If you’re headed down to Naples from Yankee territory I really recommend a trip to the zoo, if you have not spent much time in the southern part of the USA. We saw animals we weren’t familiar with and the sounds of the Gibbons was really amazing! I don’t have a great picture of them but I will upload the short video to my Instagram account to share with you.


If you’ve never heard them, you have to listen to my Instagram video here! They sound so eery. It’s actually really cool.

We saw weird trees and found bananas growing!

We bought food and fed these white birds below (I think they may have been some type of osprey maybe). We saw a huge python as well.
