Jungle Island

Zoo in Downtown Miami

Jungle Island, packed with tropical birds, alligators, orangutans, chimps, lemurs, a (wait for it Napoleon Dynamite fans) liger (a cross between a lion and a tiger) and a Noah’s Ark of other animals, is a ton of fun. It’s one of those places kids (justifiably) beg to go, so just give up and prepare for some bright-feathered, bird-poop-scented fun in this artificial, self-contained jungle.
