Inkster Valley Golf Club

Opened in May of 1998, Inkster Valley is filled with an abundance of natural wildlife incorporating over 100 acres of wetland, wooden bridges and breathtaking views within its 400-acre surroundings. An 18-hole, par-72 Championship Course, Water comes into play at 14 of the holes. The clubhouse features a grille, with variable seating of up to 100. This challenging course creates an "up north" setting without the time-consuming three to four-hour drive to achieve this caliber of golf.

Minutes from the Airport you'll find Michigan's version of Bethpage Black. Very challenging course from the back tees. The course conditions have drastically improved over the last couple years with the greens seeing the biggest improvement. Excellent Par 3's. Good luck on #11.Thank you so much for the spectacular review. 4-star feedback is great to see. We are glad you had an incredible time and hope to see you again soon.

The Woodlands Of Van Buren

Reviewed By John C

Interesting and fun golf course with a long history. Course knows how to cater to seniors. Just played 18 holes, with a cart for $25.50, but wait, that also, included a sandwich and 2 beverages in club house after round. What a bargain. This is not a PGA course, but a great course to have fun. Don't believe me, check it ou.

Block’s Stand & Greenhouse

Reviewed By AAHarris44 - Romulus, Michigan

Even though I've resided in Romulus for a number of years, I had never visited Block's. I must say that I totally enjoyed going there. last week. All the fruits and vegetables at Block's.are farm freshed I do mean FRESH! It is a huge outdoor market. I purchased all my fruits and veggies for the week. Everything I purchased was fresh, ripe, tender and sweet. I have no complaints, They had a sale on fresh corn still in husk but they were only $1.00 per bag for all the corn you could put in a grocery bag. Amazing! I have revisited Block's twice and looking forward to returning. They also carry homemade jellies, jams and preserves. The workers there are very knowledgeable regarding their produce, also courteous and friendly.

**This review is for the air show put on BY the Yankee Air Museum crew at the Belleville Airport**
I see many complaints about parking and lines but we've lived around the U.S. & attended numerous events from air shows to state fairs, amusement parks to concert/outdoor venues, not one had closer parking than Yankee, not at this size & caliber I mean. My husband recently had his hip replaced and was asked on his way out (both days, we attended Sat. & Mon.) if he wanted a ride in one of the gulf carts driven by a volunteer. And we parked in 2 different lots AND my husband is in his late 40's so for someone to notice and stop to help is unique, I've included those 2 details because it seemed many people were on the look out to help @ the show. The flight line was full of planes, tanks, a helicopter, emergency equipment, attractions you could tour, take photos of & in, Rosie the Rivetors, food and drink tents, souvenirs (we forgot to purchase a show shirt the first day and they were sold out by Monday but we were able to get one that had the year & some of the planes on it at the Blue Angels tent Monday afternoon). The actual air show, from 1-4ish, was PHENOMENAL!! From the wing walker to the parachuters, the trio of planes that kicked off the show to the "narrator," the reenactment, to Presentation of Colors then finally, the Blue Angels (of course) were heart-stopping, loud and exciting! We can't wait to see the Air Force's Thunderbirds at Yankee's show next August, 2018! Great job by ALL of the hardworking, mostly retired-looking volunteers at the show, keep up the family environment and we'll be back!

Greenfield Village

Reviewed By Dmarkwind - Kansas City, Missouri

Between his greed, the poor working conditions in his factories, and his brutal early union busting efforts, Henry Ford really wasn’t the nicest guy ever. But he showed a lot of foresight in bringing together this collection of buildings and artifacts to preserve history and make them available for public viewing. I do appreciate being able to see the Wright Brothers’ bicycle shop, Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park Laboratory, and the many other historic buildings assembled here from their various original locales. And I appreciate that Ford crossed racial barriers to work with George Washington Carver.

There’s a lot to read and learn here. The village employs an army of folks in period costumes. Between wandering around on our own, we took in a musical program, and saw an interpreter portraying Edison.

We’ve been to several other living history villages including Colonial Williamsburg, The Fortress of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia, Canada, and Heritage Park Historical Village near Calgary, but this location holds a special place because of the five or so times I’ve been to the Detroit area, I’ve visited this place nearly every time, going back to when I was very young.

The last time we were here, we paid for and enjoyed a ride in a Model T, which was a 30-minute tour that provided an overview of the place. I was a little disappointed to find the Model T ride is now just a seven-minute circuit, not a tour, and you have to line up in a cue for your turn. It was still fun, but not what I expected. Seems like there’s been other changes since we were last here more than 10 years ago, including more extensive development of the park’s roads, the addition of more food stands, and development of a whole arts and crafts area showcasing various crafts.
