When you live in paradise, it's easy to take for granted all the fun things to do right here in our own backyard.  We've got some great theme parks here in the Sunshine State, but have you discovered Discovery Cove?

It's an oasis for the animal lovers, the outdoors lovers, and those just wanting to soak up the sun.

And just in case you don't want to make the drive up to Orlando to see rare and exotic birds, we found a place a little closer to home that's part sanctuary, part conservation, and 100% parrot.
