Beautiful Detroit

Detroit gets a lot of bad press over a variety of issues, but it is still a beautiful city and a Fun and vibrant place.  This photo was taken during the evening, facing west from the top of the large earthen mound at one end of William G. Milliken State Park.  This is approximately the mid point between the Riverwalk and the Rivertown Warehouse District  You wouldn’t know this is a troubled city by watching the throngs of happy people enjoying these parks, or the groups visiting the bars of Rivertown.  Speaking of bars, I highly recommend a visit to Atwater Brewery if you are in this area.  I’ve honestly never been a fan of their bottled beer when I’ve purchased it from stores, but it seems better at the source.  The venue is fairly unusual as the bar is literally at one end if their warehouse, complete with huge vats, a forklift and pallets of cased beer.  If you haven’t been to Detroit in a while, you should visit.  The city core is not huge so it’s a great place to explore on foot or bicycle.  Plus, we all need to visit the amazing Detroit Institute of Arts now, in case something unforgivable occurs during the bankruptcy reorganization.
