Kids loved to hang out close to the lake and 50 degrees in the middle of the winter sure helped a lot. Will definitely... More

Well worth the visit. Interesting sites along the way and the areas that we walked were clean. Make sure to visit the GM Renaissance Center. The complex is beautiful.

This scenic view of the Detroit River offers a historic look into Detroit's past of the Underground Railroad. With a glorious view of the Canadian border, you'll spend hours gazing at the wonderment of one of Detroit's proudest natural gems.

I really love visiting the Detroit riverfront area. It's a great place for a walk, a picnic, checking out some historical markers, taking in the views of the river, the bridge, and the overall area. It's is very well kept and clean. We like to visit often during spring/summer/fall.

The waterfront is very scenic. The plants were decorative and beautiful. Really clean, not at all like Detroit.

Had a nice time walking along the river and checking out the historic plaques in hart plaza. It was a sunny day with great views across the river to Canada and of the ambassador bridge.

There is a nice area to walk along the river. Best time to go is definitely not in the winter! :) if you want a nice afternoon stroll this could work.

This walk was very nice and even comes with a view of Canada (Across the river). There are alot of photo opportunities at close by Hart Square. It was 25° and breezy when we were there so dress warm if you are going in January.
