We took in Zoo Miami on the way home from a family vacation to the Bahams and it turned out to be a great day. Probably helped that it was near perfect weather and the zoo was not very full, but it is a very nice zoo with good ways to get around if you are less than mobile.
Outside of the fact that the zoo has a real nice way of displaying their animals (pretty natural environments with animal that co-mingle in the wild living together in the zoo), there are several ways to get around if you don't want to hoof it all day. There is a hop-on/hop-off tram that makes a round about every 45 minutes or so. We chose the over ther top monorail. It is also a hop-on/hop-off system with four stations and makes its round every half hour or so. If you want more flexibility, you can rent a two or four passenger bike. I think they have the obligatory strollers and wheel chairs as well. I believe they also have some motorized wheelchairs.
One surprise was the food. They have some deli sandwiches and salads that were really good and had what really seemed like higher quality ingedients. I wasn't expecting that and it was a very pleasant surprise.
Nice place and very clean atmosphere. Don't miss the CritterCam building - fascinating!!
