  • The waterfront is very scenic. The plants were decorative and beautiful. Really clean, not at all like Detroit. 
  • Had a nice time walking along the river and checking out the historic plaques in hart plaza. It was a sunny day with great views across the river to Canada and of the ambassador bridge. 
  • There is a nice area to walk along the river. Best time to go is definitely not in the winter! :) if you want a nice afternoon stroll this could work.
