Lake Monroe, FL 32747

There is nothing quite like an encounter with the animal kingdom. Nature provides a spectacular cast of creatures that is limitless in its variety and its ability to excite and delight us. The Central Florida Zoological Park is a place that educates and exhilarates children and adults alike by bringing them face-to-face with intriguing animals from around the globe. The 21-acre zoo is part of a 109-acre park that is a natural wonder in itself. The park is highlighted by lush forests of graceful palms, towering pines and stately live oaks accented by billowy Spanish moss. Nestled among the scenic Florida landscape are charming picnic areas and open, grassy expanses that give kids plenty of room to romp. It is an ideal place to get together with friends for special occasions and outdoor celebrations. Open daily 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Orlando Jai Alai
6405 South Highway 17/92
Fern Park, FL 32730-2057
(407) 339-6221
The world's fastest sport, Jai Alai, offers more excitement, more action, more thrills and more fun than any sport around. This fast-paced game stands on the merits of its agile athletes who hurl a rock-hard ball back and forth at speeds up to 150 mph. But when one adds the dimension of wagering, with the opportunity for you to win up to $10,000, Jai Alai becomes the ultimate sport.

If you are planning a visit to Orlando Jai Alai, the Terrace Restaurant is your best viewing spot. Fine dining, a full complement of cocktails, your own private table with a tiered view, complete with a TV. Or for close up action, box seating puts you inches away from the court—next to the comfort of the safety screen.

The live Jai Alai is the primary appeal, but for those who prefer wagering on the horses, Orlando Jai Alai is the action center for daily racing from tracks in South Florida's Tampa Bay Fairgrounds and other special events such as the Kentucky Derby and Breeder's Cup. Track odds, payoffs, horse forms and programs are available.

Take I-4 east through downtown Orlando to Maitland Exchange, Exit 47A, which leads to Hwy 17-92, bear right where the fronton is on the right two miles away. It's an easy 15-minute drive from Orlando or 25 minutes from International Drive.
