A friend and I played tourists in Detroit this month. Sometimes its fun to re-explore your own hometown. We visited Belle Isle, the Heidelberg Project, had good eats and local beer in Midtown, took a quick stop in Greektown AND managed to avoid almost all of the chaos of the Auto Show.
I don’t remember the last time I was on Belle Isle. Historic Belle Isle, – 985 acres of island park with conservatory, museum, fishing piers, playgrounds and my personal favorite – the Ice Tree – all set smack dab in the middle of the Detroit River.
