Zoo in Highland Park

  • Detroit Zoo
    Within the Detroit Zoo's 125 acres, more than 2,500 animals call naturalistic habitats home. But amid California newts, gila monsters, bald eagles, and lions, one animal stands a neck above the rest. That's because the zoo's Giraffe Encounter allows visitors to get up close and personal with these mammals, giving them a supervised opportunity to feed them special giraffe food.

  • African Safari Wildlife Park
    Vehicles leisurely roll across African Safari Wildlife Park's landscape, yielding to a host of friendly creatures. Camels, giraffes, zebras, forest-dwelling bongos, Asian sika deer, and Scottish highland cows await you. Guests can hold cups filled with feed, which exotic muzzles devour, and a walking area provides an up-close look at enclosed species such as the rare white alligator. Warm-weather months bring out additional activities, including animal rides, pig races, and educational animal shows where guests can interact with small animals. Food and beverages from African Safari's ice-cream shop and snack bar help sate midday hungers caused by watching a guanaco sneeze.

  • The Pumpkin Factory
    Those who love fall know that full immersion is the best way to get into the spirit of the season. The Pumpkin Factory just happens to be the perfect place to plunge into all things autumnal, welcoming visitors with an array of fall-themed activities including a pumpkin patch, corn maze, hay rides and a haunted house. Once twisting stalk has been traversed and every pumpkin has been inspected and assessed for its potential carvability, kids can expel excess energy by jumping in a giant inflated spider house or by exchanging tin can recipes with the resident goats in the nearby petting farm. And, if all that activity works up an appetite, the farm's country store sells a number of delectable, seasonal treats, including pumpkin pie, donuts, caramel apples and apple cider.

  • Great Lakes Zoological Society
    While visiting the Great Lakes Zoological Society's indoor reptile zoo, guests take in animal sights that tend to deceive at first glance. A rough-barked indoor tree, upon closer inspection, may actually be a snake craftily blending in. Lizards, tortoises, and tarantulas populate similar enclosures, resting atop logs suspended over ponds or within forest-floor greenery. The nonprofit indoor zoo houses more than 100 animals representing over 70 species, including reptiles, amphibians, insects, arachnids, and birds, that help teach visitors about their habitats. Along the way, guides invite visitors to meet colorful residents such as a reticulated python weighing over 150 pounds, two 90-pound Sulcata tortoises, and monitor lizards that extend over 5 feet. Zoo staff members also lead groups deeper into the study of their creatures during classroom visits, where children learn about ecological conservation, how to identify dangerous animals, and the proper way to give a snake a handshake as they touch and handle some reptiles. On-staff instructors also teach group classes in subjects such as animal medicating, handling, and reptile husbandry. The nonprofit occasionally places its animals up for adoption, and works toward conservation efforts by rehabilitating, breeding, and rereleasing native Michigan species and global endangered species.

  • Colasanti's Tropical Gardens
    The Experience For just a moment, visitors to Colasanti's Tropical Gardens might believe they've been whisked away to Madagascar: the call of ring-tailed lemurs and the squawk of parrots echoes around acres of exotic plants. And yet this tropical locale is nestled much closer to home?just outside of Kingsville. The 35-acre family farm keeps visitors entertained year-round with 15 temperature-controlled greenhouses filled with flowering equatorial plants and cacti, a petting farm that brings kids face-to-face with foreign animals without having to go through an ambassador, and carnival attractions. The Highlights Petting farm home to pygmy goats, llamas, ring-tailed lemur, and a 10-foot alligator (admission fee required) Kid-friendly rides, mini-golf, and indoor playground Arcade room with more than 40 video games Restaurant serving famous broasted chicken, pizza, fresh donuts, and peach drink Home decor and collectibles shop Exotic flowering and tropical plants Who They Are In 1924, at the age of 22, Italian-born Aleutario Colasanti followed his dreams of a better life to Kingsville. Facing anti-immigrant sentiments and financial trouble, Alex only worked harder to eke out a living as a farmer. On a fateful trip to Detroit in 1932, he met?and fell in love with?Emma Colagiavanni. Despite her parents' protests, they eloped and started a family, and in 1941, they settled on what would soon become the Colasanti farm. Beginning with just one greenhouse and a small fruit stand, the family's operation grew over the next 30 years to host vegetables, exotic fruit trees, and a conspicuous lack of albatrosses. Though Alex and Emma have since passed, their legacy lives on through their grandchildren and the expansive Colasanti's Tropical Gardens.

  • Diehls Orchard & Cider Mills
    Leaves crunch underfoot as fluffy white clouds hang in a blue sky between long rows of apple trees. It's simple pleasures such as these that add warmth to autumn and lead people in droves to Diehl's Orchard and Cider Mill. There, fresh jonamac, honeycrisp, and golden delicious fruits hang, begging to be plucked, while hot cinnamon donuts refuel guests and pair expertly with swigs of apple cider. In fact, Diehl's loves this beverage so much, that they celebrate it every year with their late-September Ciderfest. But apples and apple accessories aren't the only stars at this orchard. Guests can also get lost in the one-mile corn maze, ride along the fields in a hay-filled wagon, roast hot dogs over a campfire, and conjure up metaphors for society with the farm animals.
