We have just completed the Discover Wild Florida adventure in Sarasota, FL and it is a wonderful trip for first-timers like we were. Our granddaughter loved the educational programs and is so proud of the number of shark's teeth she found (38 or 39)! I love birds so I was pleased we had a bird expert one morning. Be prepared, though: Sarasota is very hot in late June with high humidity.
