Nice zoo in Melbourne, FL. It took us about 2 hours to walk through but you could stay longer. It was so hot the day that we went and we just couldn't stand the heat. The best aspect of this zoo is the small water park feature that is included with admission. You can just hang out after all that... More

I enjoyed the giraffes up close. The merkats were fun to watch. They have finger food there. Nice couple hours out for anyone.

This Zoo is such a fun place for both kids and adults. You can get up close to feed the giraffes and birds. There is a reptile area where children of all ages can learn about various types of snakes etc. and a kiddie swim area. For extra fun you can also go on the zipline trek which runs thru... More

It’s been to long since the last time I visited the Brevard Zoo. I can only imagine seeing all the new residents along with all their new adventures. The Zoo is updating the exhibits all the time, and they've even added the opportunity for patrons to book their own private parties and functions. Currently they have approximately 165 species of...

What a great find! Who would guess you can feed a giraffe, mingle with the butterflies, give smoothies to the bird,s, pet a stingray? A full days worth of talking to the animals, some locals, some from more exotic and far away lands. Ride the train through natural open lands to get up lose with camels, ostrich and oryx .... More

My family really enjoyed this return visit. Every time we go it is a little different and a little nicer. The place is worth the time and any effort to go.

This was my fourth time to this zoo, and it is great! The exhibits are wonderful and you can actually see the animals. My son loved the giraffes and the alligators. The splash pool area was great as well. My son loved the boat and looking at the gosh in the water. We will be back! This is a great... More

Awesome zoo. Very easy to move around in and see everything. Lots of shady areas and places to sit. Food was very reasonably priced. There is a nice water area for the kids to play after walking around the zoo. Definite must do while in the area!

So, you've got friends or family visiting from 'up north'? Are they a family with kids or a somewhat mature couple? Ok, you're under pressure to put together a 'plan'. You develop a couple of 'plans' for such an occasion - right? Unless they're looking for para-gliding, cage fighting, voyeuristic beach volleyball, and a night-life during the day - take... More
