Come on down to Palmdale. We're located in wild Florida, near Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades National Park and separated from the big cities on the coast by miles of highway and decades of development. Our 1000 foot long boardwalk at Gatorama has kept its sense of days gone by. With a simple metal roof to keep the sun and rain at bay, you'll get up close and personal with many native and exotic animals. You're not likely to get this close to large, and we mean LARGE alligators and crocodiles anywhere else. Learn more by moving your mouse over the map below.

As you walk along the wooden boardwalk be sure to keep a sharp eye out for those snaggle-toothed reptiles who are keeping an eye out for you. Listen to sounds of frogs croaking, birds calling and an occasional splash of a gator's tail. Sometimes the nature at Gatorama gets so loud it will make a crocodile's jaw pop! Didn't get it? Come visit and learn the hidden meaning here :)
