Somerset Collection

Reviewed By 00vette48306 - Rochester, Michigan

An awesome place for food, shopping, people watching & exercise. All the high end designers, anchored by big box stores Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's & Nordstrom, are here.

The food court blows all other malls out of the water. Just walking around the mall gives you miles of exercise as you window shop & people watch. If you can't find it here, you aren't trying!

Although we visit the zoo regularly, we love spending New Year's Eve at the Zoo for Zoo Lights! It is so awesome to walk the park in the dark by the glow of the millions of lights they have depicting various things, as well as the dancing lights! The 4D show, hot chocolate, specialty liquor and beer, and local food favorites are also available.

on hand and opened to demonstrate to children or whomever. There is an endless supply of magic props, videos and whatever you could possibly want for some magic tricks. The staff was happy to demo all tricks after I purchased the kids for my nephew. My nephew loves this place, he's in complete awe and happy surprise every time we go here. He loves to visit Wunderground anytime he's in town from Kzoo, it's a must every visit.

Viewing current movies at this location is always a positive experience. The earlier in the day, the better the experience. No crowds, no long wait lines, no overall hassle. The facility is clean, the concession counters are well stocked, the seats are comfortable & the staff is both helpful and friendly.

Emagine Palladium Theatre

Reviewed By roxieb - orlando, fl

This is a great theatre. Seats are great, except for one thing....they're so comfortable, you might fall asleep. Free refills on popcorn and sodas and super nice personnel. Didn't like the fact that there was only one operational elevator the day we went, but other than that, it was a great experience.

I love this theater. In fact it's the only theater I ever go to! Plus, the fact that you can take in an awesome beer or some fantastic coffee makes it even better. Also, the food is good and always very fresh.

BreakOut! In Warren is Michigan's first live Room Escape game. Search the room, find clues and solve puzzles as a team to escape the room!

Reviewed By Tamra316 - Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, United States

Super fun outing with three girlfriends! We did the zombie room and while we didn't get out, we found three keys. Highly recommended for groups and families, although some questionable language in clues for those under 18. Zombie room is best with larger sized groups (8-10). Well organized, clean location, and friendly staff!

Troy Museum & Historic Village

Reviewed By JenBell1969 - Detroit, Michigan

Came here for Free Sunday Open House and what a great time! Fun activities for the kids from candle-making to cornhole. They had a food truck (NoshPit Detroit) parked, and mens and womens bathrooms with 3 stalls each, including a baby changing tray in the womens. They have a small gift shop in the main building with a variety of items, nothing super expensive. Most expensive I saw was about $25 for a Troy Historical Village themed wooden plaque. Candy sticks were a quarter each, mugs $14. Parking is small but close and paved. Many seating areas, both outside and in each building. Beautiful landscaping.

Cranbrook Institute of Science

Reviewed By Vanessa C - Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

Although admission is a bit pricey it is well worth it. The exhibits, both permanent and temporary are full of fun, informational, and interactive features right on Cranbrook's beautiful campus. The traveling Chocolate exhibit was really neat, featuring interesting facts and history about the sweet treat. The rest of the museum had displays about both world and Michigan geographical/science history. There is a cafe on site but it was closed on the Saturday we went on. We would come back when the exhibits change around again as its a great local attraction and learning environment!
