Detroit Murals / Street Art Tour
Sometimes a little sign from the city is just what you need to brighten your day. In addition to the longtime standards at Eastern Market, on the Dequindre Cut, and The Girl with the D Earring in Milwaukee Junction, check out the lesser known murals like Hey Detroit, You Got This by Her Murals at Hustle Flow Lab, Have A Nice Day, Detroit on Michigan, west of Supergeil in Corktown, and of course the vintage Vernors wall on the side of Corktown favorite, Folk Detroit.
Everybody knows Pewabic is famous in Detroit, but in addition to the gift shop, did you know they have a museum on site sharing the rich history of the craft in our city? When you visit the shop on Detroit’s east side, just climb up the stairs and wander around the rooms to take it all in – and the best part? It’s free!
Another east-side favorite near the canals of the Jefferson-Chalmers neighborhood, Detroit ABloom is a flower farm, native plant nursery, and “third place” for the community. It’s wonderful place to relax, meditate, or *literally* stop to smell the roses. They offer many events and workshops throughout the year for kids and adults, including Plant Swap and Social, and Vegan Fest.
Looking to relax without the stuffiness of a traditional spa or massage place? The Schvitz in the North End is for you! $40 gets you access to various hot and cold pools, with the option to add on services based on the providers that are there that day. It’s no frills – so you’ll need to bring your own robe, swimwear and slippers. They also offer food and drink on site, making it easy to spend a day here. This historic bath house is a unique experience you’ll never forget.
