Great spot for pictures, there's a fountain nearby that's pretty cool and if you have time the GM headquarters tour is nice too! Good area to be in!

The riverfront is an enjoyable and relaxing place to be! If you ever visit Detroit, you must visit the riverfront and get a bite to eat while enjoying the breeze and beautiful view!

Beautiful walk, or bike ride- bike rental on the walkway, great spaces for kids, lots of awesome natural space, lots of places to sit and people watch or watch the water. A must do.

The Detroit Riverfront is a beautiful place to be at. There is a fountain that the children play in. There are places to eat at and a path that people can walk on that is very close to the river. The pigeons and seagulls like...More
