“Brazilian steak houses have popped up around Jacksonville, but Terra Gaucha remains my personal favorite. If you have never experienced a Brazilian steak house, check this place out. You will not be disappointed. For price and value the best time to go is lunch any day Monday through Friday. The price is about half what you will pay on evenings and weekends.”

“This wildlife sanctuary is the home of many exotic cats that are rescued and taken care of on the location. Cougars, leopards, bobcats and foxes are just some of the species in the habitat. Additionally, 25 Siberian tigers (the majority of which are adorable cubs) are kept here along with a select few African lions. Although it has been open for 30 years the Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary became accredited to be open to the public in 2004. A medical facility on the property lends assistance to the care of the animals with a group of dedicated veterinarians and even dentists. Cat lovers are encouraged to participate in the adoption program; donations made to the sanctuary provide direct funding to the animals by way of food and medical care. The mantra of the facility is to educate children on the dangers of owning or attempting to domesticate wild cats, so it is safe to say Mike Tyson likely did not visit here as a youth. ”
