Are you looking for something close by for you and the kids to do this summer? In Michigan, you’re never more than a one tank trip away from a zoo. If you’re looking for smaller petting zoos and farms, where you can get up close and personal to the animals, or a large zoo with exotic animals from all over the world, Michigan has them both!

Potter Park Zoo – This 100 acre park features the county zoological park with over 400 different animal species, plus playground, picnic areas, pony and camel rides, petting zoo, gardens and more.
