Explore a part of Detroit that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places before viewing the city’s oldest church. Then, stroll past some of the best food joints in town before making a stop at the defunct Michigan Central Station, which is known as one of the most popular abandoned buildings in the world. Along the way, your guide will also point out popular local haunts that outsiders don’t know about. It’s one of the best things to do in Detroit if you want a localized experience!

Then, cover Ernie Harwell Park, Detroit Athletic co., and a food joint that serves Coney Island’s famous hot dogs. Your tour will finally end at the Gaelic League Irish-American Club, where a complimentary half-pint awaits you. Don’t forget to ask your guide for recommendations before the tour is over. Our guides always know what to do in Detroit!
