The Brevard Zoo is a wonderful place to spend the day. It continues to grow and is nice to walk through as there are a lot of shade trees. The giraffe exhibit is amazing and you can actually feed the giraffes special wafers that you purchase at the exhibit. My kids love to feed the giraffes!
The train at the zoo is also fun for the kids. It's a short trip and the conductor explains many interesting facts about the zoo and its animals. The admission price is reasonable and you can buy a family pass which also gives discounted/free admission to other zoo and discounts on merchandise from the gift shop.
Great place to spend the day!
