A neat place to spend a Sunday afternoon visiting the Depot. Some interesting buildings with the Huron River close by. A walk around town and pizza for lunch with memories from my alma mater, EMU. Didn't go into the old dealership, but enjoyed the nostalgia. It was a 35 minute drive from home.

Through aircraft displays and precious artifacts, the Yankee Air Museum teaches guests about aviation technology and the importance of flight through past wars and and the emergence of commercial aviation in the United States. Yankee Air Museum offers a wealth of educational programs and excels with STEM programming specifically developed for children grades K-12. The Yankee Air Museum also hosts the THUNDER OVER MICHIGAN™ Air Show at Willow Run Airport that has become one of the premier annual aviation events in the country. Guests also have the opportunity to purchase tickets for a once in a lifetime ride on one of our flyable aircraft: B-17, B-25, C-47, and Waco Biplane. Come visit the Yankee Air Museum and join the excitement!
**This review is for the air show put on BY the Yankee Air Museum crew at the Belleville Airport**
I see many complaints about parking and lines but we've lived around the U.S. & attended numerous events from air shows to state fairs, amusement parks to concert/outdoor venues, not one had closer parking than Yankee, not at this size & caliber I mean. My husband recently had his hip replaced and was asked on his way out (both days, we attended Sat. & Mon.) if he wanted a ride in one of the gulf carts driven by a volunteer. And we parked in 2 different lots AND my husband is in his late 40's so for someone to notice and stop to help is unique, I've included those 2 details because it seemed many people were on the look out to help @ the show. The flight line was full of planes, tanks, a helicopter, emergency equipment, attractions you could tour, take photos of & in, Rosie the Rivetors, food and drink tents, souvenirs (we forgot to purchase a show shirt the first day and they were sold out by Monday but we were able to get one that had the year & some of the planes on it at the Blue Angels tent Monday afternoon). The actual air show, from 1-4ish, was PHENOMENAL!! From the wing walker to the parachuters, the trio of planes that kicked off the show to the "narrator," the reenactment, to Presentation of Colors then finally, the Blue Angels (of course) were heart-stopping, loud and exciting! We can't wait to see the Air Force's Thunderbirds at Yankee's show next August, 2018! Great job by ALL of the hardworking, mostly retired-looking volunteers at the show, keep up the family environment and we'll be back!

I've driven past this museum hundreds of times always with the intention of someday stopping and going in. Well as a last minute driver for a group of senior citizens I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by all the exhibits on display. Out tour guide was wonderful and it was a great experience stepping back in time. I enjoyed the museum so much I've decided to take my grandchildren.

Although undergoing some landscape renovations, the Law School Quad is worth walking through. Make sure to visit the Law Library, which extends several floors underground in the expansion from about 1980. It is wonderful to walk below and see the grand architecture looming above. The Great Hall is also wonderful--reminds me of some of the great universities of Europe.

Our party consisted of three generations both male and female, and we truly enjoyed this auto museum. Since everyone points out how small it is, I actually was surprised that it was bigger than I expected. On the day that we toured, a beautiful Italia Hudson was on display. We were told that it is on loan. The senior member of our group was able to reminisce and give us a history lesson about many of the autos in the museum. The museum is operated as a non profit and exists through the $5.00 entry fee as well as donations. I felt that the $5.00 per person was well spent.

The University's beautiful campus includes many fine museums and facilities for its enrollment of 36,000.
I lived in Ann Arbor for 12 years. I went to undergrad and grad school at UM and loved my time there. The SNRE, PitE, SoE and RC are my real homes. If you are looking into a small school "within as school" feeling, you should check out the residential college in East Quad. The Secondary Masters of Education program is also top notch.

This place is fantastic! Here's a few tips right of the get go. Bring a blanket, towels, lawn chairs and a cooler with water. That'll cover all the rental fees and provide you with shade and keep you hydrated.
They actually have concessions here and they're not badly priced at all. You can bring a cooler with only water into the park but you can have a cooler with a packed lunch if you like to go that route and leave it in the car. They're are shaded picnic benches around the parking lot and you can get your hand stamped for re-entry.
The park has three large slides for teens and a nice size wave pool along with a nice splash pad and playground with various water activities on it a wading pool and very nice size sand box also. Of course nice bathroom facilities and the only downside is limited shade trees to place your lawn chairs and blankets under. Arrived early and get a shade spot park opens at 10:45 and if your not first in line shade will be hard to come by.
All of my children had a fabulous time. This is the best value outdoor waterpark in all of Michigan in my opinion. Actually it's prolly the best value water park I've been to in the entire nation.
The cost is very cheap especially compared to the size of the park and the number of activities available!
Anyway check out some of the video reviews on YouTube too.
Enjoy your experience and if you have any questions just ask :)

The acoustics here is wonderful. For many performances amplification is not really needed. I been to many wonderful concerts here, as well numerous talks, shows, etc. I am always taken by the beauty of the venue and the wonderful acoustics.

Everyone gets creative in this interactive science and technology museum, featuring engaging exhibits in subjects like psychology, the media and health.
My girls love Togo in the museum, it's a small one but with many interactive spots and overtime we go my girls spend the whole afternoon there.
