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.

Lots to do here! We had all afternoon to spend after a museum in the morning. There was fishing, beach/swimming, hiking, and playgrounds. It was $10 for an out-of-state car. It was a great way for the kids to run around. The kids also loved that they could see Canada just across the river!
