1. Hit the Lanes
Fowling, feather bowling and bowling have become popular evening activities in Detroit. Try the newest – Punch Bowl Social – or a classic, like Cadieux Café.
2. Catch a show or concert
3. Check out the craft beer scene
Detroit brews some seriously delicious beers, and you could make a career out of sampling them all. Try Jolly Pumpkin, Grand Trunk Pub, HopCat Detroit, Atwater, Detroit Beer Co., MotorCity Brewing Works, Green Dot Stables or some of our favorite sports bars.
4. Have a fancy cocktail
OK, maybe you’re not in the mood for beer. You can find some pretty unique drinks on the menu at plenty of Detroit’s best restaurants. Townhouse and Cornerstone Barrel House are great for whiskey, Detroit City Distillery makes amazing vodka, gin and whiskey, and Two James Spirits has a little bit of everything.
5. Don’t skip dessert
6. Be a sports fan
Detroit’s sports culture is thriving. Depending on the time of year, grab tickets to see the Detroit Tigers, Lions, Red Wings or Pistons in Auburn Hills.
7. Take a stroll
If the weather’s right, take in the sights – and walk off your dinner and drinks – with a stroll along the Detroit RiverWalk.
