Huroc Park

Reviewed By Darrell P - Flat Rock, Michigan

This is a quiet place to enjoy a walk in the park. A covered bridge just past the restrooms welcomes you to a walking path that locals use for exercise for themselves and their furry friends. If you want a longer walk the park is linked with Oakwood Metropark.
Trees have been planted but are still to small to give shade. The park is clean & grass mowed regularly. There is fishing along the shore just not on the bridge. There are events twice a year which provide live music & entertainment.

We drive thru here every Sunday after Church. It is a beautiful spot! Hubby bikes over there everyday that the weather is cooperative. Lots of families, picnics, special events. Park is kept nice and clean, handicapped fishing ramp, marina. Continual improvements.
And by the way, our son proposed to his wife there!

Reviewed By WindyandSun

The Fall at Oakwood Metropark is beautiful and their nature center is a must-see place for family. The location is in the woods area and closed to butterfly view trail. Surprisingly to see, they have a great decoration for Halloween. So much fun for kids and family to explore!

Lake Erie Metropark

Over 200 bird species have been spotted at this park, located on the Detroit River.

Reviewed By Sandy B - Chicago, Illinois

It's 10 bucks for a day permit. Which wouldn't be an issue if this park had something to offer. Lake Erie is contaminated with E. Coli and there are signs everywhere telling you not to swim in it. It smells awful through out the whole park. To compensate for that, there is a pool on the park grounds...8 bucks for adults and 6 bucks for children. LOL. What a joke. They charge to enter the park and then try to charge you again to swim in a pool because the lake is so dirty. There really isn't any enjoyable hiking as everything is just flat open, smelly grounds. There is a playground near the pool, but the smell is so bad it isn't worth staying there. Save yourself the disappointment and drive about 2 hours north, go to Lakeside Park in Port Huron. The beach is absolutely stunning, the water is crystal clear, you can swim in the lake and if you show up after 3 pm parking is free. Don't waste your time at the metroparks.

Block’s Stand & Greenhouse

Reviewed By AAHarris44 - Romulus, Michigan

Even though I've resided in Romulus for a number of years, I had never visited Block's. I must say that I totally enjoyed going there. last week. All the fruits and vegetables at Block's.are farm freshed I do mean FRESH! It is a huge outdoor market. I purchased all my fruits and veggies for the week. Everything I purchased was fresh, ripe, tender and sweet. I have no complaints, They had a sale on fresh corn still in husk but they were only $1.00 per bag for all the corn you could put in a grocery bag. Amazing! I have revisited Block's twice and looking forward to returning. They also carry homemade jellies, jams and preserves. The workers there are very knowledgeable regarding their produce, also courteous and friendly.

Was there on a Sunday afternoon, the alpacas are adorable and owners were present and spent time answering our questions. This is a very hands-on place, petting is encouraged and kids would love it!

Flat Rock Speedway

Reviewed By wemjam - Michigan, USA

So where else are you gonna go watch a race in the Monroe/Downriver area? That said, this is what it is. A great old race track that attracts a pretty big following of people looking for a fun night out on those Summer weekends.

Fun excitement, track food, and the smell of rubber. What more could you ask for?

Max Flight Helicopters Detroit

Reviewed By kronoskeeper - Boston, Massachusetts

I booked a 45 minute helicopter tour of the Detroit area with a customer. The setup process was very easy. The pilot was friendly and provided a lot of local information as we travel down the Detroit river to downtown. The tour flew over the major sports complex and right next to the GM building. We flew over to Bell Island and many other locations. it was a great view of the city and we were able to see many beautiful homes on the waterfront.
