Summer fun in downtown Detroit

Detroit is really changing back into the vibrant city it once was, and as a lifelong metro Detroit resident, I love being able to experience the revitalization by exploring the city, both old and new. There is of course more work to be done, but it’s important to recognize the many efforts. My friends and

7 shows to watch this winter

While the winter weather drags on, I’ve been spending more time on my bike trainer trying to get through the cold evenings until I can be active outside. Or I sit on the couch wrapped in a blanket drinking tea. While I don’t watch much television once the weather warms, I need to find distractions

Finding nature in downtown cities

I love to travel and have been fortunate to visit many great places. All fun and all very different in space and culture. I like to mix up my trips with low-key, big space places, like Montana and Alaska, to bustling cities, like Chicago and Los Angeles. My recent trips to Chicago, New York City

Exploring Little Caesars Arena in Detroit

If you’re heading to downtown Detroit to check out a sports game, concert or other entertainment event, there’s a good chance you’re going to the newest venue, Little Caesars Arena (LCA). I’ve been fortunate to attend some sports games at the new arena. I like that it brings more energy and people to downtown Detroit.

The best date

I admit it’s been a long time since I’ve gone on a date that truly excites me. It’s been some time since I’ve sat across from a guy who likes me as much as I like him, or vice versa. Dating isn’t easy, especially when you have a good idea of what you want, and,

Biking on a race track

My friends and I decided to head downtown today for a bike ride on Belle Isle Park, one of my favorite places to bike in the morning. The 982-acre island in the Detroit River offers a paved 6.5-mile bike path, plus many interior roads, so it’s easy to get some distance after a few loops.

When bowling and football collide

A friend recently invited me to join a group of people to play fowling. I had heard of this activity but never played or seen it in action. I was interested in checking it out. 2 What’s fowling (pronounced FOE-ling)? It’s a football bowling pin game. Fowling was invented by some guys right here in

A love for Detroit sports

If you’re a sports fan, living in metro Detroit is a good thing. You have your pick of professional sports teams and a host of collegiate teams. There’s no promise that any of these teams will be great all the time (or at all) but you at least get the enjoyment of having a home

Jolly time visiting downtown Detroit

Detroit has been blessed with some beautiful warm, sunny weather days. Great reasons to head downtown to explore the city. 2 On a recent exploration, a friend and I first stopped at the river walk to wander along the Detroit River, wave to our Canadian neighbors in Windsor (okay, maybe I’m the only one who

Biking Belle Isle Park in Detroit

I’m in love. With this mild, sunny weather. The beauty of nature. My new road bike. Life. I accomplished so very little responsibility-wise this weekend because I indulged myself with outdoor activities. We all need weekends to splurge and live life to the fullest, right? Yep, I think so too. 2 I kept having this
