Busch Gardens Africa, Tampa, Florida
You can travel to another continent without leaving North American soil by visiting Busch Gardens Africa, where you're sure to encounter lions, monkeys, and hippos (they sneak in a few species from other continents, too, like tigers). The family adventure park offers an array of activities, rides, and attractions based on African culture, including the recently opened Jungala.
Tickets for adult admission at the gate cost $64.95, but you can save up to $10 by purchasing online. Plus, all Busch Gardens tickets come with a free second day to be used within seven days of your first entry. (Photo: Busch Entertainment Corporation)
