ACTIVE. NAUTICAL. LAID BACK. Metro Detroit’s “East Side” is a mix of waterfront fun, food, shopping and nightlife. A 30-to-45-minute drive northeast of downtown, this boater’s paradise has friendly restaurants and marinas on glorious Lake St. Clair. Discover bike paths, a pet-friendly outdoor mall, a minor league baseball stadium and plenty of entertainment along the M-59 Corridor. You’ll need a car (or boat).
