While Space Coast families have often considered Brevard Zoo one of the best zoos in the country, TripAdvisor has officially ranked it as the 14th-best zoo in the United States.
From more than several dozen animal attractions in the state, two other Florida facilities were ranked above Brevard’s zoo, according to the TripAdvisor’s 2015 Travelers’ Choice Awards.
TripAdvisor users commented on the zoo’s friendly volunteers, spacious habitats, unique exhibits and natural beauty.
“This is one of the best zoos I have been to and I have visited dozens of them. Not too big, not too small and the animals all seem to be very happy and healthy. The landscaping of the zoo is fantastic and provides great shade for the animals and the visitors,” wrote one reviewer.
Brevard Zoo is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
