You should plan a whole day to fully explore Miami’s zoo. There is so much to see and do: The water play ground is a favorite with my kids, but there are also days when we don’t even make it so far, because we spend hours feeding the parakeets in their aviary. Plan to spend a little extra money on animal interactions. You can feed the giraffes and the rhinos or ride on a camel. In the summer month there is also a gigantic water slide. The bike rentals, which fit up to six people, are totally worth it, especially if you are here the first time Explore the zoo for 2 hours on wheels and than walk back to your favorite exhibitions.
This wonderful zoo is home to over 1,200 plants and 2,000 animals, and is sure to pack an entire day of fun into your Miami trip! For families with your kids, they even have a Children’s Zoo within the park. The newest exhibit to open soon is Mission: Everglades, which will take a closer look at the vast grasslands that are home to many native Florida animals.
