This is the most bizarre little attraction we've ever come across. When you walk in, it looks like a big gift shop and produce stand. But in the back, there's a little mini golf course and a zoo. The zoo has a very diverse and eclectic assortment of animals, and if you buy a bag of food you can feed... More

It's fun! This place is so filled with things to see you will remember it forever. The price is affordable if you have a coupon. We had a group of 6 and the price was $32. We played miniature golf and toured the zoo. There are fresh fruits to buy and a place for ice cream.

This is an old-fashioned, family-run eclectic day trip. No, it isn't the cleanest place in the world, but it is absolutely fascinating. From the 3D dinosaur room to miniature golf, or loads of citrus and plenty of animals, this place has something for everyone in the family. Animals range from the commonplace (mini horses) to infrequently seen (the friendliest camel... More

This is wonderful orange Grove stand for shipping various types of oranges. It is a step back in time when things were much simpler. A definite place to visit. They have attempted to have a museum although not exactly sure of what kind of museum because a full sized Elvis greets you as you enter. There are many nice gifts,... More

One of those oddities you find off the beaten path. we had a good time viewing the animals (all very healthy). So many surprises. Dinosaur caves and fossils and panning for gold for the kids. The gift shop is a treat from long ago. Very cool. Not very good for a wheelchair as the roots from the trees have messed... More

Do you want to go to a zoo where every animal is right in front of you? Do you want your kids to see nature within inches of their fingers? Do you want to wander at your own speed through a wonderland of wild animals and gentle animals you can touch and feed? This is your destination! Boyette's. A family... More

What a nostalgic place to visit. Some visitors may not like the fact that this is a very old attraction. But that is it's charm. Sure the animals are in old confinements but it is very clean and the animals are well taken care of. This is a has been place but it would be sad if it ever closed

This attraction has much more than you see outside. Apparently, it started as a citrus grove. The gift shop is overwhelming! After that, there is a dinosaur exhibit, followed by an extensive private zoo. How the owners maintain and improve this family business is astounding! There is something there for almost everyone.

We started taking our kids here when they were tiny, because they love the animals - They call it the Zedonk Zoo. But be prepared to step into a different world! Boyett's Grove is like nothing you have seen before. It's quite run down and has a definite FL back road attraction feel. The kids love that we can feed... More

Always wanted to check this place out, glad I did, I won't go back. Animals were interesting and pretty well taken care of. The of the rest of the place is very old and dirty.
