Although we visit the zoo regularly, we love spending New Year's Eve at the Zoo for Zoo Lights! It is so awesome to walk the park in the dark by the glow of the millions of lights they have depicting various things, as well as the dancing lights! The 4D show, hot chocolate, specialty liquor and beer, and local food favorites are also available.

Detroit Institute of Arts

Considered to house one of the best art collections in the United States, the Institute showcases everything from mummies to modern art and African masks to Monets in its outstanding collection of over 65,000 works. Don't miss the General Motors Center for African American Art, a part of the DIA which showcases 400 pieces, in various media, by African American artists.

Great place to spend the whole day; esp. now that admission is free for residents of Wayne, Oakland, Macomb counties. Special exhibits do cost extra but they are totally worth it. I recently saw the Monet paintings there. The venue is very well laid out, so it is easy to navigate thru'. The Diego Riviera mural is by far my favorite; I highly recommend taking the audio tour for this area (available at a table off the the mural room)- full of fascinating facts and info, lets one get into Riviera's head (or alternately pull up the description on your phone).
The restaurant and cafe are both very good with excellent choices for snacks, lunches and beverages; albeit a bit pricey. Lots of parking available in the DIA lot off John R. Street parking available in the alley off Farnsworth (in a residential area).

Hazel Park Raceway

Reviewed By ferryspotter - saratoga NY

Pulled our visit forward when we learned they were closing 5 weeks early. Easy access for this handicapped person and there was an excellent buffet including sausage and peppers and onions and thin-sliced roast beef and gravy. 16 ounce Budweiser and Labbatt's for $2 may have helped a good natures crowd of several thousand.
Fortunately, we were at a table with a monitor because the "toteboard" gave no information other than fractional running times during the actual races. We have previously attended Thoroughbred racing at 4 other sites in Michigan, all of which are gone now. The horsemen and fans deserve their racing and I hope Hazel Park reopens next year.

The site has gone through many incarnations, including an Old Navy Outlet store. It is currently a denizen for many local entrepreneurs to open a space to sell art, t-shirts, furniture, vintage games, scuplture, natural soaps herbs sachets, and more, historical photos, memorabilia, and more. Funky, fun, lots of great Michigan stuff.

Some of the venues will take credit cards, some are cash only

Super fun outing with three girlfriends! We did the zombie room and while we didn't get out, we found three keys. Highly recommended for groups and families, although some questionable language in clues for those under 18. Zombie room is best with larger sized groups (8-10). Well organized, clean location, and friendly staff!

The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant

Experience the Original Model T Factory Visiting the Piquette Avenue Ford Plant is a unique experience-it's the oldest auto plant open to the public anywhere in the world. Almost unchanged since Henry Ford's day, the plant is a three-story New England-style mill building. Each floor is divided into sections by the original metal fire doors, complete with the shadows of Henry Ford's "Positively NO Smoking" stencils. The old plank floors are worn from the 12,000 Model Ts built on them, so wear appropriate shoes for your visit. The plant is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a designated National Historic Landmark and a Michigan State Historic Site. Walk the worn wood floors and touch the brick walls where Henry Ford and his team of automotive pioneers developed the car that led to an automotive and social revolution. See Henry Ford's office as it was in 1908 when he was on the cusp of fame. And learn why it still matters today. See a selection of rare Detroit-built cars from the first decade of the 20th century and learn their fates.

This rather unimposing building is the origin of the modern car industry. The tour provides a comprehensive overview of the beginning of Ford Motors. The tour highlights the evolution of the early models.
An eye opener is one of the earliest Model Ts - the old adage is not true

This is a great little bar serving spirits distilled on site. They don't serve food but you can order pizza from Como's around the corner and have it delivered to your seat at the bar or at a table. The drinks are good - one of the best dirty martinis around. Recommend checking it out!

Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

Museum serves to document, preserve and educate the public on the history, life and culture of African Americans.

Reviewed By Yusuf N - East Lansing, Michigan

The most exciting thing IMO is the journey through the history of the African American People. You get immersed through a realistic journey from the cradle of mankind, to Ancient African cultures with authentic artifacts, then through the slave trade, there is a ship also that accompanies the slave trade portion, then through the underground rail system and colored troops during the civil war errors, to the cultures of the people after slave trade was abolished, to emergence of black activists and evolution of Motown music to current black cultures. It is so realistic and very informative and a great way to learn about a whole new race
