Love walking the friendly riverfront. Adults and children alike enjoy the river and view of Canada. It can be an international experience during your walk because of the Canadian view. Many restaurants for dinning right along the riverfront to further enjoy the outdoors during good weather

The Detroit Riverfront is accessible from the far east end where there is free parking near Rivard St. Or you can access it by walking out of the Renaissance Center door near Andiamo's. They have steps there where you can sit and watch the boats go by or you can relax under one of the many benches in place to... More

The riverfront provides an excellent opportunity to sightsee while getting in some exercise. It is relaxing to hear the water lap against shore and walkway. There were gardens, a lighthouse and Carousel to enjoy along the route.

I had a very romantic time. The weather was very hot but on the river walk we had a very nice time. You could see Caesars in Canada from the river walk which is right across the river and the tunnel to Canada was about two blocks away.

The options for what to do, and where to watch on the Riverfront are close to endless. The water activity of freighter traffic, pleasure boats, party boats, jet skiers and border patrol vessels keep you drawn to the water while the occasional free concert, the art work along the walk and water spouts filled with happy children makes this a...

Take a peaceful stroll along the river, with Canada in view. Fountains, carousel , and often events on the weekends.

From Hart Plaza to Belle Isle, the Detroit Riverfront is a great location to walk or cycle. Boating facilities are also available.

Beautiful views of freighters as they pass along on the Detroit River. Enjoy views of Detroit's buildings in the distance. Wide sidewalks right along the rivers edge. Ample parking, many great spots for photos.

The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy has transformed several miles of riverfront from a public sewer to a garden spot. Nice walkways, gardens, views of downtown (you walk right by the Ren Cen), and a connection to the Dequinder Cut bikeway/walkway make for a great walking or biking experience. We still await a "Bridge-to-bridge" connection, that will link the Ambassador Bridge to... More
