Family Fun near Downtown Detroit

Detroit Family FunDetroit – it's the home of great American history, culture, industry, and lots of interesting people and places. If you have never visited Detroit, this Michigan gem is whatever you make of it. If you like to mingle among the crowd and attend big events, Detroit is perfect for you. If you enjoy the outdoors and nature's beauty, Detroit can gladly provide here as well.

For these reasons, Detroit is a great place for family fun and amusement. Get ready, because we're going on a trip through the great northern city in search of great family fun. Just keep the kids calm long enough to get there.

Go to a Sports Game
If you and the kids enjoy pro sports, Detroit has it all. Visit Ford Field, take a tour, watch a game, or attend other Detroit Lions football team events. The Detroit Tigers MLB team can be seen at their home, Comerica Park. Hockey lovers can head to the Joe Louis Arena where the Red Wings NHL hockey team resides. All of these venues are convenient to food, gas, and public transportation way-points, making your travels that much easier.

Segway Tour
Now that we've quenched the family's thirst for sports, what better time to take in some more of the city itself? The average tour can often be a conflict of your child's entertainment-interests. The remedy: take a family tour of Detroit by Segway. Visitors to Southeast Michigan Segway LLC are welcome to rent Segways, go on guided Segway-tours of the city and Riverwalk, or just learn more and simply be amused by this fun, new type of personal transportation.

Detroit Science Center
The Detroit Science Center is an entire day of family fun unto itself. Visitors can marvel at the amazing planetarium, feel their way through hands-on exhibits, or watch a film at the center's very advanced Imax Dome Theater. Special events are always taking place and reservations of exclusive facility-use are available. It is ideal for visitors of the science center to call ahead for reservations when special events are the intended visit purpose.

Hamtramck Disneyland
Just off Gallagher Avenue in the city's Hamtramck section, there exists a giant curiosity. Owned privately, yet open to the public, this destination is a wondrous combination of art and a loosely, Disney-themed theme-park. There are rockets and ferris-wheels, airplanes and outdoor art, Disney characters and Christmas lights. No matter your age, you can't help but to point and stare at just about everything here as you try to take it all in. The kids will forever curiously ask, "Remember that place?"

Dequindre Cut
To finish off our little family fun trip, we end up at Dequindre Cut – a taste of nature to wind things down. Dequindre Cut is an abandoned railway line from years ago that is now part of an amazing conservation area. Enjoy the trails along the cut by bike, foot, or even Segway. Families particularly enjoy this relaxing walk through old-time America. And if you're hungry afterwards, the current title-holder of Detroit's best pizza is nearby; Indulge at Suppino Pizzeria.

Enjoy your time in Detroit. The family should have no difficulty in this at all.
