Detroit has evolved into a city that is vibrant and very up-and-coming! Detroit is stronger, more self-assured, and is so very thankful this Holiday season that it can still boast about what it has to offer that is unique and fun.
All of us at Detroit Bail Bonds love our city. Here’s just a few reasons to love Detroit, Michigan and all of Wayne County this Thanksgiving.
#10 – Motown Museum
Want to go dancing in the streets? Can’t get enough of that Motown Sound? Then this is the place to go and let your mind wander back to a time when music was young, refreshing and was everyone’s dream for success. Stand in Studio A and picture yourself surrounded by those famous artists that we still love and listen to today. Visit Berry Gordy’s restored upper flat and revel in the artifacts, pictures and other memorabilia that gave Motown its legacies and talents.
#9 – The Avenue of Fashion
Looking for boutique shops or a great place to start a business? Then say a special thanks for The Avenue of Fashion. It is once again becoming the ‘up-and-coming’ place to show off and be seen. Not only for shopping, but fine dining, dancing (yes, a studio offering Ballroom dancing lessons, Yoga, dance lesson for kids – you would be surprised!), or just a great way to take a stroll and get reacquainted with Detroit.
#8 – Baker’s Keyboard Lounge
Looking for a good jazz club? Stop into Baker’s Keyboard Lounge, known for its piano-shaped bar and some great ribs. Some of the greats that have made appearances at Baker’s are Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Cab Calloway and my favorite, Mr. Nat King Cole! So take a few minutes and enjoy the entertainment, the food, while being thankful that Detroit has been blessed with 50 years of bliss and memories.
#7 – The Z Parking Garage
Looking for art deco at its finest? Then be thankful for everything at The Z! Designed to use creativity and bright color as a way to give life to a plain, old mundane building, The Z brings diverse architecture to Detroit and gives visitors a new way to see and experience Detroit at its finest. Enjoy NoJo Kicks with its vintage décor and luxury shoe store, or 7 Greens for healthy yet delicious choices to wet your appetite and your whistle!
#6 – Celebrities
You cannot talk about Detroit unless you mention some of the greats that were born in Detroit. Lily Tomlin made me laugh for years and Berry Gordy continues to provide great sounds that we never stop dancing to. Casey Kasem was my favorite during the 60s and Tom Selleck can still make me catch my breath. Smokey Robinson is always easy listening and Della Reese is the angel watching over Detroit!
#5 – The Business Crowd
Looking to develop your coding skills? The Grand Circus is the place for entrepreneurs and tech gurus to find advancement and opportunities. Tech Town is another Detroit gem for helping stir the innovator for business connections. Need a break from all of that work? For the younger generations and business crowds, 220 & Edison’s bistro-bar is a great place for a few drinks, some networking, and a great place to relax after work (their Garlic Ricotta Balls are to die for!). Gracie’s Underground is vibrant, sensual and a great place to sip a martini and give your dance feet a rest.
#4 – History
Detroit has a long history that is exciting, interesting, and has made the city what it is today. We go back as far as 1701, but our American roots started in 1796. Somewhere around 1930 Detroit was the automobile manufacturing giant, symbolizing modern times and American Capitalism. We did everything: made stoves, cigars, pharmaceuticals and food products. We were easily accessible by both land and water, and our industrial growth was found on coal, iron and copper. But our biggest prize was being home to the “Big Three” auto makers – GM, Ford and Chrysler. And yes, we’ve had our ‘hard times’ but we are coming back with a vengeance and are thankful that life does give you a ‘second chance.’
#3 – Christmas Done Right
Three places that you remember as a kid and should still enjoy even today. Wild Lights at the Detroit Zoo that have elaborate displays, arts and craft stations for quick last-minute gifts, and Christmas stories to enchant everyone. Don’t forget the Polar Plunge! A slide that will get your blood rushing and bring back the kid in you. Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village is always a great way to get into the holiday spirit. With its old time Christmas carolers or a ride in a horse-drawn wagon, you are sure to feel Santa’s spell on you. Fall in love with Bronner’s Wonderland with all of its trees, lights, ornaments and everything you need to decorate for holiday cheer.
#2 – Activities Year Around
Whether you like to swim, fish or boat, or prefer the thrill of ice skating and sledding, Detroit has it all! Depending on the time and season, you can bike golf sled and ice skate in Kensington Metro Park. Detroit Riverfront is an amazing and family friendly destination. DTE Energy Music Theater is a great place to enjoy a summer evening of musical entertainment.
