Dudley Farm Historic State Park

Dudley Farm near Gainesville is an early pioneer farm established before the Civil War. Currently it covers 325 of the original 640 acres that were operated by the Dudley family for three generations. An authentic working farm, the homestead consists of eighteen buildings. These are restored - NOT recreated - and include the family farmhouse with original furnishings, an 1880's kitchen outbuilding, a general store and post office, and a cane syrup complex. Park staff in period clothing perform daily chores, raising crops, and tending to livestock. The farm features seasonal cane grindings, corn shuckings, and heritage varieties of livestock and plants. Deer, wild turkeys, gopher tortoises, and bluebirds are still seen in the fields. Our hope is that it will become not simply a static historic site, but rather a living laboratory where future Floridians can step back in time to feel what it is like to till the earth, plow a field, plant a crop, bring the harvest in, mark the changes of the seasons, and like the Dudleys, call a place home.

Even though I am a Florida resident, I had not visited this historic state park before. Our time here was wonderful! The farm is beautifully preserved and our docent for our visit, David Ryker, was excellent. He, and his assistant, were extremely knowledgeable and they...MoreWe are glad you were able to come and visit us, and that you found it both wonderful and informative.

We absolutely love Bouncin Big! There are so many different inflatables to play on and my husband and I even race through the bouncing obstacle course sometimes! We had our daughter's birthday party here this year since she loves it so much and everyone that works there is so nice and so helpful. We will definitely be coming back for much more fun!

This is not your Grandmother's Lasertag. Nothing like the old days of barcode scanners at the skating rink. The 'guns' are all heavy duty metal laser rifles and range from a sniper rifle to smaller automatic rifles. They are also wicked accurate. The games are mostly scenario based like capture the flag and domination (which is similar to king of the hill). The game in Newberry is in several acres of pine forest. There is nothing like stalking the other team in the dark. In the woods. My kids (both 15) and I (40) have been playing regularly for 4 years. The staff are always great and the games are always a blast. Even my wife has a great time when I can manage to drag her out there. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

We visited this zoo last month. It is small and well shaded. There are not a lot of animals, but seems perfect for smaller children. Nice place to spend a quiet hour.

Our daughter wanted to do this for her 9th birthday after hearing about it from friends. Hands down, it was her most favorite birthday to date. Danny was absolutely wonderful with my kids (ages 6, 9 and 10). He was patient, approachable, knowledgeable and FUN! Our entire fam had a blast climbing the trees. Not only was it empowering and exciting, but the adventure created lasting memories that we shall cherish always. In a world where everyone seems so disconnected from each other and things around them, this was a fantastic way to slow down, reconnect and spend time together in nature. We can't wait to go back and climb again. Danny, you are a wonderful soul and we are so grateful you made this birthday one to remember! Highly, highly recommend!
