  • It’s a nice place to visit if you want to explore Detroit and its history! I’m pretty sure this place is haunted, if you’re not afraid, go take a look  more »

  • This place is awesome! You should take a tour of the Fort and see some history. Once you go through massive concrete walls you come out to a huge area of open grass. You would never believe this place is in the city of Detroit! The Historic Fort Wayne Coalition works very hard to try and preserve the history of the fort and it shows! They have done a great job on preserving some of the buildings! Other buildings are starting to fall down, which is very sad! It is well worth the $5 price for the tour!
  • Beautiful place, the people who volunteer to keep this place preserved should be commended. They are knowledgeable and give a great reenactment. I wish they could get funding and the help that this historic place deserves.
  • Visited for the flee market. Multiple rooms with lots of stuff. Everyone was super nice and willing to make deals.
  • Wonderful piece of history. It's beautiful
  • Well I went for the society for Creative anachronism event but I ended up getting a tour of historic Fort Wayne and I fell in love with it! The guides are amazing and thoughtful and considerate and very patient. I think I will become one

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.
