Location South of Miami. Take the Florida Turnpike Extension to the Southwest 152nd Street exit and follow the signs to the entrance; # 305-251-0400 for a recorded message; # 305-251-0401 for more information

Type of Attraction A "new-style" zoo that features cageless animals that roam on plots of land surrounded by moats; guided and self-guided tours. Admission Adults, $8; children ages 3-12, $4 Hours Daily, 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. When to go Avoid sweltering summer afternoons. "You'll die here midday in July and August," a zoo employee reports. Come before 10 a.m. or after 3:30 p.m. to beat the worst of the heat. Saturday, predictably enough, is the most crowded day, while Sunday morning is usually a quiet time to see the zoo. Keep in mind, too, that animals are most active early in the morning and late in the day.
