places to visit in Detroit (1).png

Hello everyone!

My friend is coming to visit Detroit for the very first time and I got to thinking of things we should do while she's in town. I started making a list of places I like to go in Detroit and decided I should make it into a blog post! So here we go - divided by category and neighborhood. I would love any of your recommendations of anything I'm leaving out as I have only lived in Detroit for 1.5 years and am still a newbie.
