I am a big zoo fanatic and live in the middle of the Toledo Zoo in Ohio and the Detroit Zoo in Michigan. Sometimes it is hard to decide which would be better to go to, but lately the Detroit Zoo has been winning my vote. In the past few years they have added an Australia exhibit and the best part of it is that it is a walk though exhibit, so as long as the kangaroos are out, you are not separated from them by any fences. Visitors have to remain on a path, but the kangaroos have been quite close the few times I have been there. Add that to their staple exhibits of the butterflies, polar bears, and the neat events they do such as Run Wild for the Detroit Zoo (a 5k and 10K in September) and Detroit is becoming my zoo of choice.
