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.

Greenfield Village

Reviewed By Dmarkwind - Kansas City, Missouri

Between his greed, the poor working conditions in his factories, and his brutal early union busting efforts, Henry Ford really wasn’t the nicest guy ever. But he showed a lot of foresight in bringing together this collection of buildings and artifacts to preserve history and make them available for public viewing. I do appreciate being able to see the Wright Brothers’ bicycle shop, Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park Laboratory, and the many other historic buildings assembled here from their various original locales. And I appreciate that Ford crossed racial barriers to work with George Washington Carver.

There’s a lot to read and learn here. The village employs an army of folks in period costumes. Between wandering around on our own, we took in a musical program, and saw an interpreter portraying Edison.

We’ve been to several other living history villages including Colonial Williamsburg, The Fortress of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia, Canada, and Heritage Park Historical Village near Calgary, but this location holds a special place because of the five or so times I’ve been to the Detroit area, I’ve visited this place nearly every time, going back to when I was very young.

The last time we were here, we paid for and enjoyed a ride in a Model T, which was a 30-minute tour that provided an overview of the place. I was a little disappointed to find the Model T ride is now just a seven-minute circuit, not a tour, and you have to line up in a cue for your turn. It was still fun, but not what I expected. Seems like there’s been other changes since we were last here more than 10 years ago, including more extensive development of the park’s roads, the addition of more food stands, and development of a whole arts and crafts area showcasing various crafts.

Shotmakers Sports Bar

Reviewed By projectx633 - Paradise, Texas

I'm pretty sure this is the bar we visited off of Dix Highway and it was newly remodeled. So, I'm not sure what the other reviewer saw. It was clean, had TVs everywhere, new tables and chairs and was freshly painted. Our waitress was very friendly and the food was excellent! My companions had the steak and they loved their food as well. One is a food junkie and raves that the cook here does everything well. A good variety and plenty of it.
