    Visited to see the Van Gogh in America exhibit. Noticeably impressed with the staff... from the attendant at the door who directed us upon entering, to the person checking tickets, to coat check (drop off and pick up)... ALL were prompt, attentive, and very personable. Added to a wonderful experience during the visit. Exhibit itself speaks for itself, impressive. But interaction with staff really completed the experience. Easy parking too. Nice work DIA!

    It was easy to park and the security was quick. The signs for seating could’ve been a little bit better. We are used to an enclosed stadium in Houston, TX and this was a open stadium. It worked out OK for us because the weather was good. I would go back but would sit in another section. Between home plate and first base is in the shade all the time.

    As we were staying downtown, we were able to take full advantage of this walk along the Detroit River. It was very quiet when we stayed, though at some times of the year I'm sure it gets very lively (Jazz Fest, summer etc.). A little farther to the east is Milliken Park, a charming little park with a lighthouse and wonderful views to downtown Detroit, the Ambassador Bridge and Windsor, Canada.

    The building exterior only hints at how elaborate the detailing is on the interior. Absolutely stunning! Definitely walk in if you get the chance! The lobby and main hall are open to the public.

    What a wonderful museum and such an informative docent!
    This museum is small. It has all the old Ford models. This visit was the best museum experience because the docent was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. He was a retired engineer who had worked at the Ford plant and knew all the history behind each car model on display.
    A must visit when you are in Detroit!

    Nice to find a clean, family friendly, park on an island in the river between Detroit and Canada. Enjoyed the conservatory and aquarium.

    Was so much fun. We went on a Saturday for the food market. Lots of variety and a big crowd. It was hot, but well worth it. We walked it for a couple hours enjoying the sites and smells.

    Unfortunately some of the stations are closed for maintenance and that information is not reflected in their website.

    This street used to be lined with nothing but Greek restaurants. It is now dominated by Greektown Casino. There are only (2) dedicated Greek restaurants left, Pagasus and The Golden Fleece. It’s still a nice place to visit for dinner.

    Well it's not like Chicago, Boston or NYC, but still it's a nice area to explore.
    We walked from the Riverwalk, all the way up to Comerica stadium.
    Hart Plaza, GM center, Guardian bldg stand out among others and plenty of bars and restaurants around.

    The GM center stands in the middle of Detroit Riverwalk. With its several adjoined skyscrapers it's the tallest Detroit edifice easily seen and recognizable from all around.
    It's a huge complex with office space, hotel, food court and GM cars displayed down in the lobby (free and clean restrooms by them if you're walking the Riverwalk).

    We saw Leanne Morgan there on Saturday night. Our tickets were downloaded to my iphone and there was some trouble getting them to show at the ticket kiosk so we were told to go "closer to the door" for a better connection. Not a big deal but we got there almost an hour before the show started so it wasn't that busy yet but I can imagine the line at the door was bad if that continued to be an issue. The theatre is beautifully restored and offers concession drinks. (It irritates me when patrons put their cups on the floor, spill and let it run down to the seats in front of them, just a pet peeve). Also patrons seem to deaf to the admonition not to record performances so ushers had to continually monitor the audience which was very distracting as they marched up and down the aisle. Otherwise, I'd recommend attending any performance there. Sound was good and our seats had unobstructed viewing since the two people in front of us decided to move to a couple of open seats LOL!
