Miami Zoo – Fantastic Annual Membership

One of the best gifts have I received as a mommy was a membership to our local zoo, Miami MetroZoo. It was a present back in Fall of 2008. We got such use out of it. The Zoo’s Dual Membership pass pass let me bring one child under the age of 2 (my daughter, obviously!) and another adult. It worked great. On the weekends, my husband was the adult and on the weekdays I could easily invite a friend with her child to come, free of charge! Great deal, right?!

A few weeks ago we hit the zoo after a few months of just not having the time. We had a BLAST! The animals were moving, the weather was perfect and we got a ridiculous amount of exercise in (the zoo it’s HUGE!) Best of all, we renewed our pass!
Check out this photo from when we fed the giraffe. The photo was taken with my iPhone – so there is no zooming…that’s how close I really was – CRAZY!

    I love my pass too! We renewed it in late May. It’s practically in our backyard, so it’s great for us. We feed the giraffes every time we go. Have you ridden the camels? We haven’t, but I remember when I was little there were elephant rides there, that was my favorite part!

      Yes, we’ve ridden the camels! Actually on our last visit my 4 1/2 year old was big enough to ride by herself! I was petrified watching her! She had a blast – she has no fear!
      Feeding the giraffes is always on the top of our list. I’ve read that they recently opened a new petting zoo called Wacky Zoo. Must check it out and see!
