Downtown offers, mini parks, beach, sport venues, restaurants, bars with easy access transportation. So, get out and walk it out with pit stop along the way and enjoy.

Pick a show or a game, round up a group of friends and head to Downtown Detroit for a fun night. Lots of trendy bars and restaurants to choose from. Also, a great daytime place to explore and shop.
