**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!

Depot Town

Reviewed By TomDearborn - Dearborn, Michigan

A neat place to spend a Sunday afternoon visiting the Depot. Some interesting buildings with the Huron River close by. A walk around town and pizza for lunch with memories from my alma mater, EMU. Didn't go into the old dealership, but enjoyed the nostalgia. It was a 35 minute drive from home.

The Village Theater

Reviewed By Larry S

I have been to this theater for musical plays, orchestra concerts and similar events. The theater is semi intimate (seats about 400-500). I would guess the acoustics are average. However, it fits the need perfectly for events of a moderate to smaller audience. As a local community theater, it is perfect. The area is very safe. Parking is a little bit of a nuisance but certainly manageable.

Plymouth Historical Museum

Travel back in time through the Plymouth community's example of the American Experience. Learn how the growth of American industry, the advent of the railroad and the invention of the automobile changed America's small towns, especially Plymouth, Michigan. The Plymouth Historical Museum features a late 19th-century Victorian recreation of Main Street, tracing the growth of the small town from the railroad depot to the general store. The largest Lincoln collection in the state of Michigan is housed in a separate room off of Main Street. And a Timeline of Plymouth is the newest permanent exhibit, featuring displays on the Daisy Air Rifle, Ford Village Industries, the Alter Motor Car, World War II, communication history, and much more.

call first, we went one Sunday and there were not many there - lots of fun, (our flight was cancelled and had to wait 2 days to get out staying at hotel) following Sunday went back on return trip and there was a huge birthday party and not much room for the 5-15 year olds to jump - basically had to just stay on their own trampoline (and lots of people jumping 2-3 on one when switching the guy working wasn't watch well they needed more than just him with the number of people there).
