What did I love? To start? Ample free parking, tons of picnic tables outside (you can't bring food inside), clean restrooms, and clean grounds. Add that to the pedal car rentals, which made it possible for us to see almost the entire zoo in 3 hours, and we had a great time.   We fed the giraffe, but not the rhino, and that was a cool experience.  We also touched the stingrays, which my 80 year old grandmother especially liked. The exhibits are set up such that the animals feel like they are very close to you, and the "barriers" in the outdoor exhibits are natural, rather than bars and plexiglass.  The koala was adorable, like a big sleepy cat in a tree.  Too cute.   My oldest son liked "driving" the pedal ca...

I visited Zoo Miami with my family and  it is amazing! The animals were active and visible, which surprised me considering the fact that the temperature was in the nineties. Having physical limitations that prevent me from standing for any length of time, I was excited to see they had bikes to accommodate a family of four. Riding the bike, althoug...

EXCELLENT place to let your little ones explore & roam around like baby animals :). I've been bringing my son to Zoo Miami for stroller rides since he was 2 months old. He's 2 years old and STILL loves coming here. You would think both my husband and I would be tired of the place, but not even close! There's always something to do! We're about to purchase our year passes for the 3rd year in a row! If you don't have time to do much, I suggest stopping by the Amazon area first or their newly renovated Children's Petting Zoo.  There's much to see and do in both areas. A few places of the Zoo are currently under construction, but as a whole, it's still an awesome place. Take comfy shoes because you'll be doing A...

I have to admit I not been to the zoo since I was a kid.  This was such a nice change on a Sunday after brunch to visit the Miami Zoo.  I still want to call it Metro Zoo but the name has changed over the years.  I went with a friend on a late afternoon after brunch so by the time we got there it was 3:30pm.  It was pretty late to be entering the park since it closes at 5:30pm.  But we figured since it was "Pink Days" we would get a discount at $10.00 to visit the zoo for a couple hours, which was definitely worth the time and effort.   The entrance fee is usually $15.00 so it really is a cheap afternoon if you want to enjoy a nice day without the craziness of the beaches.  They give you a map of the park whe...

I love Zoo Miami! This zoo is amazing! You can spend an entire day walking around seeing a wide variety of animals. It is great for kids and grownups! Make sure you choose a day that is not too hot as you will want to stay a long time with all there is too see. The walk through the entire complex is a few miles, but...

Been to the zoo twice this year, once with discounted tickets and once for free. I think the zoo is way too overpriced. Besides the entrance fees food is a real gyp. $7 for a hamburger with chips, drink not included?! Where do they do that at?! Besides that, the exhibits and animals are incredible. They really have a lot of animals here. Every exhibit is broken down by country of origin. They have a lot of places that children can entertain themselves at. Adults will be happy to know that beer is sold and there are areas set aside for smokers. They're doing some construction opening up a new exhibit so it's really messing up with the food spots in the zoo. They literally were only selling hot dogs and hambur...

This place is great!  The animals are usually always out and close enough for you to get a great look.  Animal encounters like the giraffe feeding, rhino encounter, and camel rides are great but of course at an additional charge of $2-$5.  My kids always go with bathing suits to take advantage of the water play areas which are a great r...

YAY for the zoo!! The weather def participated - it was overcast and breezy. The animals were out either playing around with their toys or relocating themselves to a new area. The best part - close encounter with one of the gorillas!!! Never been sooo close to monkey feet (thru viewing glass) lol. If you don't like the heat, go early (animals are more active in the mornings) or during the cooler weather. Also you can take advantage of the Seated bicycle rentals (22.00 for 2 hours). It looked like fun, but we enjoyed the walk without the pressure of having to return anything. If you have kids, make sure to bring their bathing suits; they have little waterparks in the park to cool them off. TIP: The monorail w...

It may be Zoo Miami now but it will always be Metro Zoo to me! I have loved coming here ever since I was little. There are so many animals on exhibit and they always have babies being born (which I love). There are tram tours you can get on for about five dollars and when you get tired of walking you can hop on the monorail. Just make sure you buy the pass when you walk into the zoo. Also, a big plus there are misters throughout the zoo to keep you cool as you walk. If you have children there are a number of water play parks as well. Word to wise the food and drinks inside the zoo are a bit expensive but if you have a annual pass I believe you get a percentage taken off. Last but not least I recommend buying...
