Historic Treasure

Our Take

Belle Isle beautifully reflects the rise, fall, and rebirth of Detroit. It’s still being developed at the moment, but it feels like it captures the heart and soul of the city, with its mix of abandoned and restored historic spots. Highlights include the epic conservatory, the oldest aquarium in the country, and an abandoned zoo. Bike or drive around to enjoy the views of Michigan to the North and Canada to the South, and take a break to enjoy a picnic.
