  • It was very cold to walk but beautiful scene from the car. You can see across the border and even smell the liquor fermentation.  more »
  • The park is a great place to bicycle. A lot of wonderful attractions (the Fountain, Conservatory, Aquarium and the Great Lakes Museum). The views of Detroit, Canada and the Detroit River are awesome. ...  more »
  • Neat island that happens to be host to some serious racing, and a neat little nature preserve and the oldest aquarium in the US...and it's free to the public.  more »

  • One of my all time favorite places to visit in the city of Detroit. Well actually it's floating in the middle of the Detroit River between Detroit and Canada. It is like an instant getaway from the big city. I Love the beach. Great for working out in the spring, summer, and fall. Probably wonderful for cross-country skiing in the winter? Because It is now a state park, they do require a park pass or an admission fee per auto.
  • Beautiful spot to see/visit in Detroit. Lived around this area my whole life and never visited until recently for my husbands birthday. We definitely enjoyed walking around and seeing what the isle had to offer. It's also really cool being across the river from another country (Canada).
  • Even in cold weather, everything about this place was gorgeous. The conservatory was so cool, the plants are curious and amazing and a nice place to earn up a bit. The aquarium has so much history and the views of the city are so pretty. I can't believe I have lived in Michigan for 30 years and this was my first time there!
  • Always a serene visit. I just wish they had not covered the area where the deer are. Mother is 90 and always wants to see the deer. It is hard for her to get out the car, go in, etc. It should not be a big deal for seniors to be able to see them from their vehicle. Regardless, it is free to see them from the vehicle and free if you go inside.
  • Looking for outdoor fun? This is a great place for the family. Lots of playgrounds, A conservatory, aquarium, and lake to wade in. Tons of fun for the kiddies. In the summer they even have a big slide. Pay a fee to get in but then everything in the park is free except the slide. Bring water or drinks in hot months as there is no designated area to buy drinks or food ( did find an ice cream truck and two food trucks to buy drink luckily!)

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.
