Zoo Miami features more than 3,000 creatures that squawk, slither and swing from branches. Miami’s big zoo offers interactive opportunities like giraffe, camel, parrot, giant tortoise and rhino feeding. Guests can also take a guided tram tour, cruise with the family on four-wheeled safari cycles, or float through the heart of the "Everglades" on the Lostman's River Ride. Zoo Miami is open every day of the year from 10 am to 5 pm. Daily admission is $22.95 for adults and $18.95 for children (3-12).
