Begun in 1948 with three monkeys, two black bears, and a goat, Zoo Miami has survived two hurricanes since then and remains one of America's favorite zoos. In fact, it is the only tropical zoo in the United States. Visitors can experience the animals of Asia, Africa, Amazon and Beyond, and Australia. An air conditioned monorail connects the vast park and makes it easier to move between exhibits, while providing unparalleled views. There are also narrated tram tours which allow patrons to get an in-depth knowledge of the zoo and its animals.
