Family Activities In Detroit

We've put together a Parental Detroit Bucket List. Things in and around metro Detroit that parents can do with the kids ⎯ whether they're just learning their first words or getting ready to graduate from high school.

These are early fall-time and anytime adventures that don’t take a lot of time or money — and that’s the point. It’s all about creating family-fun memories.
