Campus Martius Park is a great place to relax and offers ice skating fun during winter months or ride in a horse-drawn carriage, with a beautiful backdrop of decorations for the season. A Detroit treasure and a national and international destination, it was named “Top Public Square” last year. This rink offers one of the most beautiful skating experiences in the country. Prices are: Adults $11 | Child (12 & Under) $9 | Seniors (59 & Older) $9 | Military / First Responder: $8 | Skate Rental is $5.
The park is only a short distance to the Cultural Center in the city’s Midtown district with a landscape of art and history museums, dining, entertainment, and much more. The heart of Parker’s Alley is an ever-changing work of art, always decked out for Detroit’s next event. The collection at the Detroit Institute of Arts is among the top six in the United States. Seek out special exhibitions, kid-friendly workshops, artist demonstrations, film, and music programs. Visit the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the largest museum of its kind in the world. Or take the entire clan on the elevated People Mover for a 2.9-mile loop around Detroit with great views of downtown and the riverfront.

Movie night has returned to Detroit with the reopening of the Monroe Street Drive-In. It is the first of a new lineup of Bedrock’s “Decked Out Detroit” initiatives scheduled now through Spring 2022. This improved outdoor film experience and brand-new open-air complimentary seating attraction, this year’s Monroe Street Drive-In Powered by Emagine, will offer plenty for Detroit’s movie enthusiasts.
The Monroe Street Drive-In Powered by Emagine will feature unique artwork by Detroit’s very own, Sheefy McFly. Sheefy’s work was a vital part of the Monroe Street Midway activation this summer, spanning the entire floor of the Rollout Detroit Roller Rink. Now, he’s designed a whole new concept that will be prominently displayed on the Campus Martius-facing side of the 60-foot-tall theater screen. >MORE
