“Under the Radar”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Most people don't know about what's inside this place.

The Dort Mall is the area's first enclosed mall, built in the early 1960s. Today it is still a mall, but most of the stores are now closed.

Why would you want to visit this place? I'll tell you. The Dort Mall has a very cool collection of rare and one-of-a-kind oddities that you will find nowhere else. Better yet, there is no admission charge to see this "museum" of cool items.

This place is a genuine "Roadside Attraction".

One store that is open here, is Perani's Hockey World. This store has been featured on a TV show featuring the "World's Best". The category is, of course, "hockey store".

The Coney Island inside the Dort Mall is like stepping into a time capsule portal to the mid 1960s. The food is good and cheap, and the restaurant has probably never been remodeled since the mall opened.

If you are planning a trip to, or through the Flint area, and want to see some of the more "oddball" sights, then you must put the Dort Mall on your list of things to do.
