“Wander the paths, kayak through the gorgeous canals, set up a BBQ on the beach, get a game of baseball or soccer going...this is a great summer spot. What I love most about Belle Isle is the diversity of the people who come to enjoy it. It's truly a great reminder that we're all the same, that we all want to enjoy life, that we're all here together :)”
“Fantastic local shopping; goods and food! A neighborhood anchor. Saturdays and Sundays, the vendors are expanded. Always a nice morning stroll! ”
“This is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Southeast Michigan! It’s home to an extensive array of Motown artifacts, photos and other memorabilia. The museum is a testimony to Motowns legacy and to the charisma, talent and staying power of the music and those who made it. ”
“Top pick for flavor out of all the restaurants I have been to in Detroit. Smaller plates that never require salt or pepper. If you are looking for a unique place, that WON'T disappoint, this is it.”
