Attraction Highlights

A landmark that was also a sign of the times, Pontiac’s Strand Theatre lay dormant for several years in the heart of Downtown. But with visionary guidance and investment, the Strand reopens this week as the Flagstar Strand Theatre for the Performing Arts. Catch the Five Irish Tenors February 2nd, or American Idol champion Phillip Phillips this April.

Help welcome Carr, a green sea turtle, to his new home: The Sea Life Aquarium at Great Lakes Crossing in Auburn Hills. Sea Life Aquarium features over 5,000 aquatic creatures, an acrylic viewing tunnel, as well as regularly held educational talks and feedings.

Michigan’s only LEGOLAND® Discovery Center also calls Great Lakes Crossing its home, helping to draw regional interest to Oakland County. A relatively new addition to the list, the popular toy retailer and theme park opened its doors in March 2016. If you go, be sure to check out their replica of the City of Detroit–yes it’s made of LEGO® bricks, too.
