The Detroit Zoo is a really special place that if you are ever in the area, you should definitely check out. They, in particular, know how to celebrate holidays. The zoo is known for one of the best Christmas light displays in the area and they have a lot of fun with Halloween as well.
I visited recently on a beautiful day in early October. It was surprisingly hot and sunny, a welcome break from chilly fall weather. Many of the animals were out, though the polar bear was in for the day.
The grounds alone are beautiful. It’s fun to walk around and get steps in while taking in the sights and sounds. Dad mentioned they used to let peacocks run wild, and it was barely five minutes later that we encountered one.
They are friendly and stunning. Who wouldn’t want to spend a day hanging out with such majestic creatures?
I wore one of my favorite new-ish dresses with a pair of shoes that treated me quite well considering I walked over three miles. The hat didn’t quite go with my attire, nor the zoo’s, but it was a necessary component of sun protection.
