Detroit International Riverfront
With the reddish lights of Windsor, Canada illuminating the opposite end, this stroll along the Detroit River is most beautiful in the early evening. Five-and-a-half miles make up the Detroit Riverfront, which runs from the western-standing Ambassador Bridge to the eastern-located Belle Isle. You’ll pass the iconic skyscrapers of Downtown Detroit, like the GM Renaissance Center, and the lovely Milliken State Park and Harbor, dotted with bobbing boats. Weather permitting, there are always plenty of family-friendly activities to partake in, such as movies under the stars, free concerts, and carnivals. Come back to the Riverfront in June for what’s arguably the best view of the Ford Fireworks, one of the world’s largest fireworks displays.
