Easy Detroit OutdoorsEasy Detroit Outdoors

Detroit enjoys a reputation as one of America’s major urban and industrial centers. Yet there is much of the great outdoors in this city—even in the heart of the downtown. Easy Detroit Outdoors shares the best of The D’s outdoor pursuits. Paddle the historic canals once occupied by Detroit’s notorious Purple Gang. Drive outside the busy city for a visit to U-Pick orchards, premier golf courses and gorgeous rail-trails. Or stay in the city center to experience Slow Roll bicycling with 1,000 fellow riders. Easy Detroit Outdoors promises a new perspective on the Motor City that includes urban gardens repurposed from once abandoned city lots and a sandy beach and ice skating rink in the heart of downtown. Like its predecessor, 100 Things to Do in Detroit before You Die, this book will help you create—and complete—your very own Detroit-themed bucket list, this time in the great outdoors.

Detroit travel writing100 Things to Do in Detroit Before You Die, 2nd Edition

Detroit enjoys a rich history, having forged the American landscape with sexy muscle cars and the toe-tapping rhythms of Motown. But there’s more to love about Detroit than merely its history. And there’s never been a better time to explore, as The D buzzes with a spirit of renewal. 100 Things to Do in Detroit before You Die paves the way to a rediscovery of this great Midwestern city.  You’ll find in these pages a Detroit brimming with the spirit of rebirth, where young chefs innovate with urban farm-grown food and where manufacturing know-how crafts Shinola watches and Detroit Denim. You’ll read about exciting new developments like Little Caesars Arena, the QLine and the newly restored Detroit Foundation Hotel. And since oldies really can be goodies, you’ll revisit classic sights like the Detroit Institute of Arts and the North American International Auto Show.

Whether you’ve lived in Detroit all your life or you’re a traveler eager to discover the city for the first time, 100 Things to Do in Detroit before You Die will help you create–and complete–your very own Motor City bucket list.
