Entrance to the island is free by bike or foot, and only $10 per year for your vehicle. Within this storied haven there are so many cheap/free things to do: play disc golf, ride down a giant six-lane slide for $1, expand your knowledge of maritime folklore at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum, feed fallow deer at the nature center, rent a tandem kayak for $20, admire each other’s flab at the beach, ride bikes, explore, etc.
On any given night, you can find several bars hosting karaoke in Detroit. Passionately belting out the lyrics to any number of Madonna songs is something we really enjoy here, so hit the town and wreak out-of-tune havoc on other people who sound equally horrible. Make a night of it.
