Best Chimps: Suncoast Primate Sanctuary Foundation

For a day of monkeying around, head to this sanctuary housing over 70 apes, small primates, birds and reptiles. Established in 1954 by a juggling and magic trick-performing couple, SPSF’s former primate film stars, lab retirees and pets will make you smile. Banana, anyone? Volunteers, community and businesses contribute to its success. 4600 Alt. U.S. 19, Palm Harbor, 727-943-5897, suncoastprimate.homestead.com.
