The official name is Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens. It’s one of the best small zoos anywhere — and Collier County residents get free admission on the first Saturday of every month. The full story on how that happened is here.
All you need is a photo ID that shows a Collier County (or Naples City) address. But one need not be a full-time resident to qualify: if you actually live in Michigan but own property here, you are good to go. Just bring your photo ID and a utility or cable bill that shows a local address!
The next free Saturday is February 3rd. Arrive anytime between 9am and 4pm. And the parking is free, too!
If (when) you go, please also make note of these simple rules of Zoo etiquette. It’s not just about common sense, but your safety and that of your children.
And have a great time!
