Our favorite season to visit the zoo is the winter. There are smaller crowds, many animals are indoors so you can see them up close and it’s a good way to exercise during the hibernating months. At Wild Winter you’ll find special activities, zookeeper talks, crafts and more.
Campus Martius Park
Bundle up and head downtown for a chilling good time! The popular winter festival is back and better than ever. There are now four weekends of fun and they’re all free!
