Lions and Tigers and Penguins. Oh my!


The Detroit Zoo  |

Located just off of 696 in Royal Oak is Michigan’s largest family attraction, the Detroit Zoo. Sitting on 125 acres of naturalistic habitats, this gem of an attraction is home to more than 2,400 animals of 255 species from aardvarks to zebras. Visit the brand new Polk Penguin Preservation Center, the largest penguin exhibit in the world along with other exceptional exhibits you won’t find anywhere else.

The Detroit Zoo also has special events for all ages, including the Zoo Brew beer festival and Wild Lights, a holiday-themed event perfect for a family night out. There’s no better place to immerse yourself in wildlife from all around the world.
