Michigan is renowned for its wildlife, scenic views and array of water-loving creatures. But the state also plays host to non-native animals, plants and fish in the zoos, aquariums and gardens that can be found across the state. There’s no better way to lend an exotic vibe or to create an atmosphere of calm during your event than by hosting it at one of these venues. The following is just a sampling of the many parks, zoos, aquariums and gardens throughout the state, and the features that can create memorable experiences for your guests.

Thousands of people came together for the 1926 grand opening ceremony of the Masonic Temple; years later, the iconic building continues to stand as an invaluable piece of Detroit’s history. Complex, elegant and a story of its own, the 96-year-old building has recently undergone a multimillion-dollar renovation, expected to be complete by the end of the year.

Find Out How Great Lakes Bay Region Rewards as Event Destination

Nestled in the heart of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula is an attractive group of destinations known as the Great Lakes Bay region. This diverse area offers plenty to reward both the business traveler and the casual tourist.

Farm Venues Offer Rustic Elegant Settings for Events

For most of our state's history, Michigan barns primarily have hosted horses munching hay or farmers milking cows. Today, however, they can also house all sorts of events, from weddings to team-building corporate retreats.

To plan a barn event, there’s no need to grab your overalls and pitchfork. Today’s barns have all of the amenities you’d expect to find in many banquet halls, along with charming historical touches.

Restaurant Recommendation: It's a Matter of Taste

Michigan may be the Great Lakes state, but we’ve got plenty of inland waters, too. And some of them make fantastic settings for group dining. It’s a Matter of Taste in Commerce Township offers gorgeous views of Union Lake from both its restaurant and its second-story banquet facilities. Restaurant Manager Robin Traynor says though the menu is Italian-based, the food is “eclectic, with a bit of something from everywhere.”
