The RainForest at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo: Not only does Cleveland have a Rain Forest, it’s one of the largest tropical indoor environments in the world. Housed in a massive two-acre, two-story, glass and granite structure, it features more than 10,000 plants and 600 animals from the tropics in the Americas, Africa and Asia. Many are endangered species from threatened habitats. Its unique design blends the jungle in and out of exhibits making you feel you are a part of it, not just on the outside looking in.
