Beautiful views

The river is a beautiful view, with lots of walking paths , areas to sit and relax too. It's kept up nicely.

Not sure why this listing is separate from the RiverWalk, but it may be in order to include the patchwork of empty lots and new construction high-rises and condos that make up Detroit's river frontage. As the Detroit Expert's spouse commented, "Detroit is a patchwork." There are seeds of promising new developments (like the pending hockey stadium) surrounded by literally... More

We walked to the renaissance in order to kill time as its located on the river walk. Walked for a few minutes as it was extremely cold

I always spent good days at the Riverfront with my sister R.I.P. and bless her soul . We had good times, especially at the one by Grand Blvd. The feel of being so close to another country always gets you. Makes you feel grand in some type of way. I would also love visiting the Riverfront by the Renaissance Center,... More

This is a great place to enjoy a nice view of the river and walk around town. If you like the metropolitan view mixed with a bit of old-school classy feel to things is a great place to take a stroll. Downtown is not horribly far and thats worth the walk aswell

It had been a while since I was downtown Detroit and able to walk around and see the restoration taking place. The walkway along the river was clean, safe and scenic. The views of the Detroit and Windsor skylines were surrounded by beautiful landscapes and green space areas. Glad I was able to enjoy time to witness the Detroit turn... More

For the amount of undeveloped waterfront Detroit has looking across to Canada's impressive skyline, I was somewhat baffled how they weren't taking advantage of the missed revenue opportunity. Detroit has so much history and has had such a rough go, it is confusing as to why they do not attempt to attract more of a tourism industry from both their... More
