Tim’s Travel Tips: The Detroit Zoo

by Tim Joseph

The weather is getting cooler and there may not be much time left to spend outside. To me, that’s the best time to go to the zoo. I love spending my last days outside before winter hits looking at the beauty that nature has to offer us. One of my favorite exhibits at the zoo is the butterfly house. You walk into a room where there are trees and plants everywhere. Next thing you know there are butterflies fluttering about. My 2 year old got a big kick out of them. Also, the polar bear exhibit is amazing. You walk underneath the bears and can look up through the glass to see them swimming above you. The zoo is no doubt the most unique experience to be had in Detroit.

In addition to all the fun you will have, you’re helping a worthy cause. The Detroit Zoo is involved in many conservation efforts that support communities abroad. Definitely a worthy cause.

Ticket prices are $11 for adults (Age 13-61), $7 for the kids (2 and under free) and $9 for seniors. Open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. See detroitzoo.org for more information
