A tropical respite from the crowds and Las Vegas–style attractions, Bird Kingdom is the world's largest indoor aviary, with over 400 free-flying birds and more than 35 exotic-bird species in the 50,000-square-foot complex. For creepy-crawly lovers, there are also spiders, lizards, and snakes—including a 100-pound python that you can hold. Check online for a schedule of feeding times. Parking is an additional $2 per half hour, but there's a public lot behind the building
(on Hiram Street) that is $5 per day.
