Me and my boyfriend visited Detroit for his melee tournament but we decided to make it more interested so we took a stroll around the city to check everything out with it being my first time there and it was absolutely beautiful.

We love to bike down here - the view of the Detroit River and people watching is fantastic. There also a nautical inspired children's water park area that kids can experience for free - great on a hot day!
