Spring & Summer 2016
Detroit, Mich. — Visit Detroit magazine’s Spring & Summer 2016 issue, covering content from April-September, is now available at newsstands and on visitdetroit.com. The issue spotlights activities for a visitor’s Detroit bucket list and new bustle surrounding Detroit’s Eastern Market.
Visitors can experience Detroit’s culture through its sights, sounds and tastes. The Detroit Bucket List gives travelers a rundown of must-sees as they visit this spring and summer. Examples include joining in on Michigan’s biggest weekly bike ride, Slow Roll, eating a giant turkey leg at the Michigan Renaissance Festival, soaking in some rays at The Beach at Campus Martius Park and learning how to fowl at Hamtramck’s Fowling Warehouse. From high-energy sporting events to intimate tours of historical homes, suggestions from The Detroit Bucket List will give readers the urge to get out and explore.
Meet Me at the Market takes readers inside Detroit’s historic Eastern Market, full of new restaurants, bars and retail hot spots. Detroit’s artistic side can be seen on dozens of buildings as the market has become the epicenter of the city’s amazing public art movement. While the market is open on Saturdays year-round, due to popular demand it’s also open Tuesdays and Sundays from June through September, and area businesses have varied hours of operation.
Detroit’s eclectic food scene, recently featured by publications such as The Washington Post and Zagat, is growing in all shapes and sizes. Visit Detroit makes note of food carts, trucks and vans serving up selections from coffee to Mediterranean nachos in Hot Spots.
