For the past few years, we have visited Belle Isle during Shiver on the River located inside the Belle Isle Casino. It happens around the beginning of February and is free. We got to explore the Belle Isle Casino building which is not usually open to the public. The kids got to enjoy hot dogs, chips, drinks, and a magic show.
During Shiver on the River, the Belle Isle Aquarium, the U.S. Coast Guard Station Belle Isle, the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory, the Detroit Boat Club, Dossin Great Lakes Museum, the Belle Isle Nature Museum, and the Detroit Yacht Club is open. This year our family got a tour of the Detroit Yacht Club.
We also got to watch an Ice Rescue Demonstration in front of the U.S. Coast Guard Station.
One of our favorite spots is the Detroit Boat Club. My father loved rowing and used to take me here when he was alive.
Random pictures throughout Detroit. It would be great if these homes and buildings could share their stories and how they got here.
