Detroit Institute of Arts

Considered to house one of the best art collections in the United States, the Institute showcases everything from mummies to modern art and African masks to Monets in its outstanding collection of over 65,000 works. Don't miss the General Motors Center for African American Art, a part of the DIA which showcases 400 pieces, in various media, by African American artists.

Great place to spend the whole day; esp. now that admission is free for residents of Wayne, Oakland, Macomb counties. Special exhibits do cost extra but they are totally worth it. I recently saw the Monet paintings there. The venue is very well laid out, so it is easy to navigate thru'. The Diego Riviera mural is by far my favorite; I highly recommend taking the audio tour for this area (available at a table off the the mural room)- full of fascinating facts and info, lets one get into Riviera's head (or alternately pull up the description on your phone).
The restaurant and cafe are both very good with excellent choices for snacks, lunches and beverages; albeit a bit pricey. Lots of parking available in the DIA lot off John R. Street parking available in the alley off Farnsworth (in a residential area).

Edsel & Eleanor Ford House

Telling the story of Edsel and Eleanor Ford and their family through their historic home on the shores of Lake St. Clair. We offer tours, programs and special events at this National Historic Landmark. Edsel Ford was the son of Henry Ford, and he built his grand home in the style of the Cotswold villages in England. Surrounded by 87 acres of scenic lakeside grounds, the home and landscape are open for tours in all seasons. The home was designed by prominent Detroit architect Albert Kahn and Jens Jensen, one of America's foremost landscape designers and conservationists. It is filled with original antique furnishings, as well as art from the Fords' vast collection. Ford House also hosts popular events, including a Fairy Tale Festival in June, Detroit Symphony concerts in July and holiday tours and events in December.

When in Europe, people enjoy touring the impressive and luxurious residences of kings, queens and famous people...in America it's the homes of super wealthy that offer the alternative.
This home is as close to an English manor as you might be able to get on the North American continent.
To say the least, it is very authentic as the owners, Edsel and Ethel Ford, imported large amounts of the construction material from various century old manors in England.
It is definitely worth the some 13 miles, about 25-30 minutes, drive from downtown Detroit.
It will allow you to peek in to the private lives of the Fords and their genteel lives of splendor.
There is beautiful art, but most are replicas of famous originals that can be viewed at the Detroit Museum of Arts in Detroit.
The expansive grounds are serene and beautiful.
Detroit is alive and well worth a visit.

Looking to Solve the Case of the Perfect Party?Here's a clue! The Murder Mystery Company is the nation's most popular, interactive, mystery troupe.

Reviewed By johnlh - Southfield, Michigan

We visited the Murder Mystery Company for my husband's birthday. We were supposed to have early access ticket, there was no early access. The doors open and everyone was let in at the same time. We did not op for the gold circle experience. We did see the seating for the gold circle and there weren't any better than the general price seating. Food -The side dishes were heavy on carbs, with a salad that came with one choice of dressing and tasteless green bean with almonds tossed on top. The meat was a small chicken breast with some type of crust on top. Our waiter was aloof, never introduced himself to the people sitting at our table. Never asked if we needed anything or how our dinner was. There were three other couple sitting at our table and they were very nice. We really enjoyed their company. Play - The play required a lot of audience interaction with everyone in the room. As soon as we got our food they were rush us to eat and get up and start asking others in the room for clues. In the middle of our dinner, they told us time was up for eating and we should get up and have interaction. Were they crazy? When dessert was served (ice cream) the same thing happened. Needless, to say that wasn't going to work, ice cream melts. My opinion there was too much interaction with the people in the room, I can see interacting with the people at your table during your meal to discuss clues. But to try to interact with other people clear across the room during your meal was a bit too much. Food? - ok, nothing to write home about. Best part of the evening? - the conversation with the people we dined with. Play? - ok. Would I go again? - no.

Every year we board the Ovation for a charity event and it's always a great experience! From the Captain and deck hands greeting you as you board, to the wait staff that move stealth-like, it's a well oiled machine. Appetizers and dinner selections are delicious, fresh and easy to manage on a moving boat. The bite size desserts top off the food served. Several servers carry them on silver trays and describe each one. The cookie dough one is second favorite but the salted caramel one is to die for! Music is great, bartenders efficient and friendly. Take the ride...you won't be disappointed.

Good neighborhood bar that's been at the south end of Center Line for many years. The former Pershing High School teacher and basketball star has a gem and knows how to treat his customers. His bar food is much better than average bar food and it's a great, safe place to come for a beer and sandwich. Keep up the good work Doughe Sills, who once was a pretty good third-baseman.

Reviewed By Tamra316 - Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, United States

Super fun outing with three girlfriends! We did the zombie room and while we didn't get out, we found three keys. Highly recommended for groups and families, although some questionable language in clues for those under 18. Zombie room is best with larger sized groups (8-10). Well organized, clean location, and friendly staff!

I took my boys and their friends, ages 10-12 and we had a blast! From solving the puzzles in the lobby to earn extra playing time, to working together to “escape”, we all had a great time.
The room was challenging, but not impossible!
The staff was warm and welcoming! We can’t wait to go back and try another room!

The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant

Experience the Original Model T Factory Visiting the Piquette Avenue Ford Plant is a unique experience-it's the oldest auto plant open to the public anywhere in the world. Almost unchanged since Henry Ford's day, the plant is a three-story New England-style mill building. Each floor is divided into sections by the original metal fire doors, complete with the shadows of Henry Ford's "Positively NO Smoking" stencils. The old plank floors are worn from the 12,000 Model Ts built on them, so wear appropriate shoes for your visit. The plant is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a designated National Historic Landmark and a Michigan State Historic Site. Walk the worn wood floors and touch the brick walls where Henry Ford and his team of automotive pioneers developed the car that led to an automotive and social revolution. See Henry Ford's office as it was in 1908 when he was on the cusp of fame. And learn why it still matters today. See a selection of rare Detroit-built cars from the first decade of the 20th century and learn their fates.

This rather unimposing building is the origin of the modern car industry. The tour provides a comprehensive overview of the beginning of Ford Motors. The tour highlights the evolution of the early models.
An eye opener is one of the earliest Model Ts - the old adage is not true
