Vandalee13, You are correct. There is a list of zoos that accept other zoo memberships. There all kinds of perks besides the nice walk. I get notice for special events. Sometimes I have to pay for the special events, sometimes I just get free parking. I get a monthly magazine and newletter that highlights all the new things. When you think that a movie costs $8-10 for 90 minutes, the membership really is a great bargin. Remember the zoo is open year round.

We have one for the Teledo Zoo. There we get in free an at a lot of other zoos you get in at a discount. We have the grandparents one which allows us to take the grandkids free plus free parking. emoticon Check because they are all different. Used to be that a membership got you in free to the different zoos.. emoticon

Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it . And staying with the plan.

Our greatest glory is not in never failing but to rise again every time we do fail. An be willing to try again

Success if the sum of small efforts repeated day in an day out

That's a great idea. I don't live close enough anymore but I never even considered that! I'll have to rethink membership at some of the parks closer to me for exercise.

Yes, the regular admission is a bit expensive. However, I purchased a membership. If you live in the tricounty area, I beleive that you get $10 off. I paid $50 for an adult plus one guest and it includes parking. If I go by myself 4 times the membership pays for itself. And the membership fee is also tax deductible. For me, it mixes up my routine a bit and is very enjoyable.

I miss the zoo. I used to take my boys every year until we moved up to Croswell. Now, it's just too darn far. We are moving to Algonac soon (I hope) and if we do, I'm going to start taking them again.

If you live near the Detroit Zoo, they are open Wednesday evenings until 8:00. This is a great new option for walking. I am fortunate to have time during the day to walk in the zoo but I went last Wednesday night. It was not as crowded as during the day. It is also a great walk because the ground is very uneven and really gives your legs a great workout.
