The Miami Metro Zoo, is a wonderful experience for both children and adults, especially the giraffe feeding platform! Here's a tip: go early in the morning. It is almost always hot in Miami and, not only can the zoo become very warm, but the lions sleep in the heat. So, if you want to see them romp, try to get... More

Miami Zoo is a great place to go with the family. There is plenty of animals to see and the new addition of birds from different countries is beautiful. You can rent bicycles. It can be a bit costly but its worth it.

We recently visited the Zoo after several years from our last visit. We found it very organized, good activities and the exhibits very interesting and fun. The animals seemed happy and well taken care of. We rented a bike that sits several adults and children and it was a great way to get around. It also had a cover that... More

Zoo Miami is beautiful. The animals are kept in natural enclosures ( no cages). I recommend renting the multi passenger bikes, particularly if you have children. The highlights for my children were the camel rides and the giraffe feeding. If you visit in the summer, bring bathing suits so that the kids can splash in the childrens' area.

One of the premier zoos in the world. Very large, wide diversity of animals. Time well spent here. Take sunscreen and a hat!

My family and I LOVE Zoo Miami. We have an annual pass and just recently added my parents so they can take the kids when we have to work. It's a great place for a day out. The kids love watching the animals. Get there early especially on weekends to beat the crowds. The bicycle rentals are also great.

We have family in Miami area and have been lucky enough to visit the Miami zoo several times. They have the best setup for feeding the giraffes, able to accommodate many to have the opportunity to meet these beautiful gentle giants. A couple of favorites: the bikes available for up to 4 adults and a child or two give you... More
