Filled with over 3,000+ animals- there's a chance for everyone to catch a glimpse of their favorite at the Detroit Zoo. Put your hands on a "real" giraffe skin (it is real- but not actually on the giraffe) watch the polar bears frolic in their icy abode and watch the otters and their crazy antics.
While you're there- be sure to check out the amazing architecture found throughout the grounds of the zoo. There's an amazing 'Bear' Fountain by Parducci, a 'spitting' frog water feature and an Aviary designed by famed architect Albert Kahn- both the building + the butterflies are awesome! Don't forget the gazelle and baboon sculptures + the prehistoric pterodactyl by Marshall M. Fredericks- some of my favorite pieces- totally in L-O-V-E with them.
Lions and Tigers and Beer, oh my! Head over to the Detroit Zoo on September 26 for their annual beer bash. The Zoo Brew is an annual beer festival that encourages attendees to walk and talk with the animals while enjoying a frosty adult beverage!
Celebrate the evening with polar bears, flamingos and primates while sipping on over 80 varieties of beer made by local artisan breweries from around the state. Live bands will provide music and a tram will provide a guided tour around the grounds.
Additional fun includes an exclusive talk with a zookeeper and access to special habitats at twilight. Every guest will receive tasting tickets that will allow them to sample 12 types of craft beer. This popular event sells out quickly, so don’t wait to order tickets!
