Our new Gulf Breeze Zoo is a favorite destination during the cooler months when the animals are often most active. Open seven days a week, this is a must-see that's easy to pull off.

Throughout Santa Rosa County, centuries of history unfold, and winter is an excellent time to take it all in. Best of all, with our exceptional antiquing opportunities, you can also take a little of that history home.
