Things to Do in Detroit!

Things to Do in Detroit!

As a bustling international city, Detroit has limitless things to do, especially with the greater state of Michigan as a magnificent backdrop.  Michigan is bordered by four Great lakes and is home to 11,000 lakes within the state, providing abundant opportunities for the adventurous at heart.  The city of Detroit also sits on the Detroit River, with Windsor, Canada on the other side, only a quarter mile away.  Bring your passport if you want to visit! For a recent piece of history, walk through the Woodlawn Cemetery to see Aretha Franklin’s grave. For some older history, check out the Motown museum, home to Studio A, a famous recording studio, and the flat where Berry Gordy lived. Brewery and riverboat tours as well as getting outdoors in Belle Isle State Park are popular attractions for people new to the area too.  The Charles H. Write Museum of African American History and Ford Rouge Factory, where the F-150 was built, are also options.  Special visits on the Annual Meeting program include General Motor’s Detroit-Hamtramck Plant Tour; the Detroit Institute of Art, which houses the Diego Rivera murals; and a Henry Ford Museum Tour, taking us back in time to what the city looked like in the early 20th century.
