Florida is known for its alligators. While they may be commonplace to FL residents, many visitors still want to catch a glimpse of these unique and powerful creatures. If you’re on vacation in the Orlando area and want to see a Florida alligator up close, we at Carl’s Van Rentals suggest a trip to Gatorland.


Gatorland is exactly what it sounds like: a theme park dedicated to showcasing alligators! You can ride the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line, try your hand at gator wrestling, or check out one of the many shows featuring alligators of all shapes and sizes.

The park has thousands of alligators as well as crocodiles. You can even see some rare white alligators! If you’re looking for a thrill or want to get really up close and personal with the alligators, you can become a trainer for a day or take part in special adventure tours.

If you want a genuine Florida alligator experience, then Orlando’s Gatorland is just for you! Check out the Gatorland website for its hours of operation, current admission prices, and events’ schedule.
