Awesome! I'm so glad you discovered our little gem, Lawrence. It's great to hear that you are going to spread the word to all your friends. I hope you have an even better time when you return next!

By the way, there's a plethora of events and celebrations that occur over the more tolerable summer months in D'troit.

Yeah that's the beginning of the Riverwalk. When it's finished it'll stretch over 4 miles from the Ambassador Bridge to the Belle Isle Bridge. So far they've only done the stretch from Cobo Hall to the Renaissance Center.

Here's a pic in the opposite direction:

And this pic shows the stretch outside the Ren Cen:

The eastern portion towards Belle Isle should be finished or near finished by this fall. I think. As far as the western walk towards the Ambassador they dont have any concrete plans yet or funds. The east riverfront is essential to Detroit's rebirth while the western portion is more for Detroits future. My guess is that the western walk will be accompanied by some proposals for the land around it.
