When our children were little, living fairly close to the Zoo, we went all the time. With the kids grown, we had not been there in quite a number of years. Having exhausted every local place to take a nice walk over the years, we decided to go to the Zoo! We purchased an annual membership pass on-line in a matter of minutes and off we went. Many new exhibits since we were last there spaced very nicely over a 3 mile walk. While many animals seem to spend much of their day sleeping, Zoo Miami is packed with plenty of interesting animals that always seem to be at play. The stars today were the giant otters, chimpanzees and gorillas. One large silverback was up against the viewing glass fast asleep giving us a chance to really see him up close. Because this was Easter Sunday, by the time we left, the place was packed, many on rented family bikes. Fortunately, I remembered that most people seem to start their walk or bike rides to the right. We went left and seemed to have much of the Zoo to ourselves until we finally hit the crowds as we got most of the way around. Over the last few hundred feet to the exit, we felt we were driving down the wrong side of the highway. Hints, if you're going on a weekend, go early and start your walk to the left side. A most enjoyable three hours! And, with our fairly priced annual membership, we will be back often!!
