Four Hours in Detroit

One thing I’ve been thinking about lately is how I’ve lived in southeastern Michigan for roughly 23 years out of my 26 on earth, and yet I’ve only gone to Detroit a handful of times – and basically just to go to Comerica Park (and Eastern Market once).

Randomly, last weekend, two friends and I decided to go explore Detroit for a few hours. What I loved about this was that we did both tourist-y things (like the Ren Cen and RiverWalk) and completely non-tourist-y things (like driving through some of the neighborhoods where my friend works). We saw the good stuff and the bad stuff, and though Detroit always gets a bad rap – there is lots of good stuff. I won’t pretend to magically understand Detroit after a few hours, but I’m glad I saw a little more this time around.
