December is one of my favorite times of the year to visit the Detroit Zoo. The crowds are non-existent, and many of the animals are much friskier in the cooler weather.
If you can get past the Terrifying Old Man hosting these breakfasts, it's a beautiful opportunity to do something unique at the Zoo -- waffles at the Gallery!
From the Zoo's site:
There are still spots available for this year’s Breakfast with Santa. The Zoo will host the event in the Wildlife Interpretive Gallery on December 5, 12 and 19 from 8 to 10 a.m. The doors will open at 8 a.m. and breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. This buffet-style waffle breakfast includes a special gift for each child, arts and crafts, photo opportunities and a visit from Santa and a few of his wildlife friends. Photos with Santa are available for purchase. For members, tickets are $25 for adults (ages 15 and older) and $20 for children (ages 14 and younger). For non-members, tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for children. The non-member price includes Zoo admission and parking. Tickets are required for all children, regardless of age, as seating is limited. Booster seats are not available for safety reasons.
