A Trip to the Detroit Zoo!

Our Sales and Marketing Manager, Jana Urban had a fun-filled weekend at the Detroit Zoo!

Read on about her trip and take a look at her photos!


It was Zoopendous!

The Detroit Zoo was absolutely wonderful! There were so many educational exhibits, fun activities and animals to see!

The Detroit Zoo is Home to more than 3,300 animals of 280 species. Among my favorites were the Camels, Seals and Lions! I also really enjoyed taking Tauber Family Railroad which goes through the entire zoo as well as the Giraffe Feeding. It was such a blast and I learned so many wonderful facts!


Did you know that the Poison Dart Frog is one of the most toxic animals on Earth?  The two-inch-long (five-centimeter-long) Golden Poison Dart Frog has enough venom to kill 10 grown men. Tiny but, deadly!


Also, The Female Peacock is not brightly colored those gorgeous creatures are actually the males!





There were some surprising elements as well. THE FOOD WAS FANTASTIC!  There were several cafe’s that served delicious food such as flatbread sandwiches and healthy, hearty Salads. Some cafe’s also sold some cocktails and draft beers. So adults, if you are not the designated driver and need to show some kids a good time,  it is truly a fun time even if animal watching isn’t your thing!

Arctic Café
This cafeteria-style restaurant is the only one of its kind across the country in a zoo or aquarium setting that is Green Certified by the Green Restaurant Association. The Café earned distinction for its eco-friendly practices which include cutlery made from potato starch and soybean oil, touchless sensor faucets, increased recycling options, and a programmable thermostat. As the main feeding station, this location offers an expanded menu including deli salads and sandwiches, traditional grill favorites, pizza and vegetarian options.

Safari Grill
Similar to the Arctic Café, this concession stand offers traditional fare including burgers, chicken tenders, french fries, and fresh-made chips. For dessert, grab an iced-cold Icee or an ice cream cone! Safari Grill is located in the back of the Zoo across from the Tauber Family Railroad Station.

American Coney Island
A favorite with native Detroiters and visitors alike, the famous American Coney Island hot dog is now available at the Detroit Zoo! Located across from Rackham Fountain The cafe serves coney favorites include chili cheese fries, gyro’s, and greek salads.

Kijiji Cafe
This location specializes in East Coast favorites like the Philly cheese steak and buffalo chicken tenders. Located across from Rackham Fountain next to the Ford Education Center.

Sweet Treats
Cool down and satisfy your sweet tooth at this location with ice cream, Icee’s, and Sno Cones. Fried favorites such as elephant ears and funnel cakes are also available at this stand, located across from the bear dens at the west end of the Arctic Ring of Life.

Be prepared to do a lot of walking! Good news is that The Tauber Family Railroad can take you through the zoo, but only 1 way. So you can either walk through the zoo and take it back or take it through the whole zoo and walk your way back to your exit! Think of it as your daily exercise…

 Some other perks:

There is a 3D Theatre, Wild Adventure Rides and a gorgeous Carousel right in the middle of the park.

There is really something about the zoo that makes you feel like a kid again!  I  learned so many amazing facts and saw some wonderful sights. I had a blast and would return in a heartbeat!

Please contact me directly and mention THE DETROIT ZOO for a discounted room  rental rate!
