Things to do in Sarasota! Big Cat Habitat

I am not typically a Zoo person but I do love animals! I recently went to the Big Cat Habitat this past weekend and I am still raving to all my friends. I personally have never been so close to Bears, Tigers, Lions, and they have a Liger.  All the animals are rescues meaning Big Cat does not purchase any of the animals.

They do offer several shows including a bird show and a Cat show.  The property also had a small area where kids can pet and feed several of the animals-Don't worry no Tigers in the petting zoo just; mainly goats and few others.  You can pay to feed the large cats which is pretty cool to watch! 

Thanks, Megan Siesta Key Concierge (Sarasota) 

Gates open at noon and close at 4:00 p.m. Bird show at 1 PM and animal demonstrations in the air-conditioned arena at 2 PM.

Admission fees: adults $18.00, children from 2 to 12 years old $8.00 (100% of the admission price goes towards the upkeep and care of Big Cat's animals). Parking is always free.

Treasure Hunt for Kids on Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota

                     Treasure Hunt for Kid on Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota Florida
Beach and shallows treasure hunt for the kids, followed by fishing from the beach for adults. These fun and educational hunts are great for the kids. 
The kids could either split up in teams with an adult or our fun guide can lead the whole group.  The exploration would involve gathering critters such as specific shells and crabs, and spotting a few fish that dwell in the surf.  Following that, the adults and older kids could fish for snook and snapper amongst other species.
Cost : $250 for 3-4hours
