closing of the aquarium

Today's last day to go to the Belle Isle Aquarium brought forth masses of Detroiters looking to catch a last glimpse of the aquarium. There was still some protest to keep the aquarium open today with the passing of flyers. The aquarium's closing date has been stalled already and I wonder if the huge crowds will buy the landmark some more time.

Next to the aquarium sits the conservatory which is a site to see if you haven't been there. It is like stepping into a jungle of exotic smells and lush greenery. Definitely check it out if you haven't been there!

The line wrapped around the building! Tons of families came out to support this historic building.
