    VISIT This place. The history here is remarkable and there is a castle kind of thing. Plus you can kind of let your children run free within reason and they can have fun!

    I made a wrong turn just the other day and stumbled upon this wonderful, historical place. I had never seen this Fort before in my life and I was born and raised here in Detroit. I recommend that everyone make a real effort to visit one day. I plan to visit again with my 14 yr old son this month.

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.
