    I was impressed by Belle Isle, it's quite large. There's a beach, fountain, yacht club, golf course, and play ground.  more »

    Beautiful island to walk around. In the end but a bike rented and cycled all the way around. Wonderful view of the river and lots of spots where you can sit in the shade!

    I absolutely love Belle Island. What a beautiful oasis in the middle of a metropolitan area. Great place for a hike or to catch some rays. I recommend the eastern side near the lighthouse. Great views of Lake Michigan. There used to be a zoo on the island but I don't believe its still operational. The casino is great for parties or events. Also check out the Grand Prix its a lot of fun!

    Absolutely stunning park. Excellent views of the city, river and Canada. Plenty of things to do (aquarium, museum, nature center, etc.) Can easily spend an entire day with the family having fun, and if you have the Michigan recreational passport, it's free! ($6 without). Highly recommend. Will definitely be returning.

    A fun and inexpensive place to take the family too. We went on Memorial Weekend which was very busy. Great place to take family photos at the Conservatory. The Zoo is okay and you get to feed deer which look like goats. Kids liked it though. Some torn down buildings. They have a beach. Will come back.

    A little piece of everything. Sunset point is wonderful for, well, watching the sunset over the city. There is kayak renting, bike riding trails, golf driving range, secluded mini-beaches, conservatory, historic aquarium. Lot's to do. And since it is now State run, there have been some improvements. A great place to go. I would say a must see in Detroit.

    It a fun place for people to spend. They have a good job renovating the place. There is a very nice kid play area. Aquarium even though very small is very unique. My family and I had a blast.

Where to stay in Detroit

Detroit offers accommodations to suit every type of traveler, and you don't even have to stay in the central business district to take advantage of the finest hotels. Downtown lodging gives you easy access to most of the city's major attractions, but choosing a more affordable room in Detroit's outlying neighborhoods can also be rewarding. To explore the city's famously diverse neighborhoods, consider staying at a budget-friendly guesthouse on the southwestern side of the city.
