If you’re looking for a holiday light display that’s fun for the whole family, look no further than the annual Jacksonville ZOOLights at the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens.
So Much to See and Zoo
While you might think visiting the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens in the evening would be about the same as during the day, we’re here to tell you it’s a totally different experience. With glowing light displays, holiday music, and twinkling trees, the zoo on a holiday evening is simply magical.
ZOOLights is Kid Friendly
If your kids love the zoo, then they’ll love attending ZOOLights during the holiday season. Walking along the zoo paths they’ll see illuminated animals such as flamingos, bears, dolphins and so much more. Everywhere you look there are animated light displays! While you won’t see many real animals at the zoo in the evening, you’ll see lots of light display animals kids can enjoy.
Take a Ride on the Holiday Zoo Train
(2021 UPDATE: The Zoo train will not be operating this year, but check back in 2022.) One of our favorite parts about Jacksonville ZOOLights is the train! If you purchase a total experience ticket it includes a ride and it’s well worth it. Not only is the train lit up in hundreds of Christmas lights, but there are light displays all along the ride. These displays are ones that you can’t see from the walking trail, which makes the train ride extra special.
