You’ll Go Wild For This One-On-One Giraffe Encounter In Florida

When you live in Florida, you learn something new every day. I knew there were plenty of reasons to love the Sunshine State, but I had no idea there were so many incredible animal sanctuaries popping up in Florida. A little while ago, we told you about an elephant sanctuary we in Williston. It turns out there’s another incredible place where you can get up close with animals that you don’t expect to find in Florida: The Giraffe Ranch in Dade City.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Giraffe Ranch is located at 38650 Mickler Rd, Dade City, FL 33523. Call (813) 482-3400 for reservations. Visit for more information about the farm and available experiences.
