Myrtle Beach has plenty of attractions for everyone, but if you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, check out one of the largest reptile facilities in the world, Alligator Adventure, located in North Myrtle Beach’s Barefoot Landing.
Alligator Adventure has exhibits for everyone to enjoy, giving visitors an up close experience with these prehistoric creatures. Several beloved alligators live in the park, including Utan, the world’s largest crocodile. Since 2002, Utan has lived at Alligator Adventure. Older than many of his visitors, he was born in 1964, weighs in at 2,000 pounds and is over 18 feet long!
Utan may be King of the Crocs, but there are plenty of other reptiles to see. From albino alligators to lemurs, you can spend an entire day in the park. A fan favorite at Alligator Adventure is Bob, a female alligator born on-site without a tail, back in 1997.
While there are tons of crocodiles and alligators at this wildlife hotspot, Alligator Adventure is home to a number of other wild animals as well, which are featured in live shows throughout the day. Other animals include, but are not limited to bobcats, cassowary, flamingos, hyenas, sea turtles, ostriches, lemurs, marmosets and more!
So if you’re in need of a break from the beach, be sure to head to Alligator Adventure for a wild time. Take a look at ticket prices here and visit our website for more fun Myrtle Beach ideas!
