No matter how old i get this place cheers me up .My parents live in Miami and my dad always took me to this place even on my 36 th birthday you will love it .Then there is the Vizcaya Museum and the Miami art museum please look them up for the address .And when you want to eat or have a snack do not be afraid to check out the small places like the Cuban coffee shops and the little restaurants that look a bit beat up trust me they are clean and they have really good food for a low price. Oh i know about these off beat restaurants because when i went to school in Miami as a teen i cut classes. Went around to check everything out i wanted to see how the people live.My dad was not too happy with that when school called. And when you look for a hotel check out the Econo lodge .com you can get a good price and the places are clean. Do that on line and do not worry if they give you a place not to far from Miami i say rent a car to get around.Please check out enterprise car rentals and the other car rental sight.Because if you sign up for there discount card on line or membership cards
you get a good price on the cars when you rent them.

Once called the Parrot Jungle, my memories of this "zoo" are mainly all from Elementary School. We used to take class trips here like it was going out of style. I swear, every other week it was like "Please have your parents sign this waiver, just in case you're eaten by a Parrot". I may be misremembering that.
Now called Jungle Island, this zoo still houses a huge, giant, fantastical selection of Parrots, both native and foreign. It's kind of a joke, actually, because as far as I know they don't clip any of the birds wings and, therefore, a lot of the Parrots you may see out and about in Miami actually call Jungle Island home.
In terms of Zoos, this one is quite unique and I definitely recommend it for any zoophiles visiting Miami.
