Wintertime at the Detroit Zoo

Well, you might be asking yourself, isn't it too cold for a trip to the zoo?  And you might be right, but if you can get out on warmer winter day most of the animals will be on display.  If it is too cold outside, the Wildlife Interpretive Gallery, Free Flight Aviary, Reptile House, Amphibiville, River Otters, Penguinarium, Ford Education Center, Wild Adventure, Great Apes, and Ring of Life are all indoor attractions that can keep you busy for the whole day. 

Ring of Life Arctic Exhibit

In addition to many of the animal exhibits, the Arctic Food Court and the Zoofari Market are open all year.    According to the Detroit Zoo website, the hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until the end of March.

See a Polar Bear up close!!!

If you aren't a member, I highly recommend considering a membership.  The zoo has a ton of great programs throughout the year that are well worth the investment.  Plus, with a membership, you don't feel the pressure of having to do the whole zoo each time you visit.  This is especially helpful when you have little ones who nap in the middle of the day.  So today you visit the butterflies, and next time you see the bears. 

Who knows, maybe I will see you at the Zoo this winter.  Have fun and keep warm!!!
