A Trip To The Brevard Zoo

Over spring break, we spent a few days just south of Cocoa Beach on the East Coast of Florida. We had a pretty cloudy afternoon in the forecast so decided to forego the beach and check out the Brevard Zoo.

Trip to the Brevard Zoo

The zoo was a quick trip from our beach condo just south of Cocoa.

Our first pleasant surprise was the admission cost, which was very reasonable – $13.95 for children 3-11 and $17.95 for adults.

The staff was exceptionally friendly and extremely knowledgeable and the animals were in spacious habitats. The girls loved the Paws on Play area where they interacted with an African Tortoise, Horseshoe Crabs, goats, frogs and stingrays.

We loved the meerkat exhibit and the giraffe feeding area in Expedition Africa was amazing! We spent a good thirty minutes laughing and watching the meerkats play in their habitat. The giraffes were not hungry by the time we got to their area, but there is a tall structure where guests can feed the giraffes sweet potatoes from the height of the overlook.

On our way out, the girls took some time to get their photos at the Quarters for Conservation Selfie Station where they learned a little about a few animals currently facing extinction. They also got their faces painted (for free)!

If you are planning a summer trip to the Cocoa Beach area, there are also summer camps and programs offered weekly. Cocoa Beach is about an hour from Orlando. We can’t wait to go back!
