The Detroit Zoo | Royal Oak

Lions, and tigers, and bears, OH MY! Visit the Detroit Zoo to see a plethora of animals, from your favorite big cats, to small insects & amphibians & everything in between. For a spectacular one of a kind exhibit, don't miss the kangaroo walk through!

Step into a world where past innovations fuel the imagination of generations to come. A vibrant exploration of genius in all its forms, Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation allows you to experience the strides of America’s greatest minds while fully immersing yourself in their stories.

Experience firsthand the sights, sounds and sensations of America’s fascinating formation, where over 80 acres brim with resourcefulness and ingenuity. Step foot in the lab where Thomas Edison had his light bulb moment or the workshop where the Wright brothers taught us to reach for the sky. Take a ride in a real Model T, or a walk through four working farms.

There’s nothing like a train to carry you back to a simpler time. Imagine what a ride on the Huckleberry Railroad can do.

Michigan’s little Bavaria is a place of horse-drawn carriages and covered bridges. Of riverboat cruises and world famous chicken dinners. Of big water parks and small-town strolls.
