4 Things to do in Detroit this Winter

Detroit is a magical time during the winter. It does get cold, so be sure to bundle up for the outside activities. However, there are also just as many indoor activities this time of year depending on your preference. If you’re in the area, get in the holiday spirit with these options.


The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn recently just started a display of nearly 7,000 keepsake Hallmark ornaments from as early as the 70s. What a more perfect way to get in the holiday spirit than seeing thousands of older ornaments? They also have a display showcasing Disney costumes from the films over the years. This is only until January 1st, so if you’re wanting to see this, definitely go soon.

Admission is $27 to visit.


Immersive art galleries have been becoming more and more popular over the last couple of years. For the holiday, they are doing an immersive Nutcracker art show. Tickets go for $30 and the display is only here until December 30th. You’ll listen to classic Nutcracker songs while being immersed with an animated and beautiful art show. Get your tickets now!!


The Monroe Street Midway across from Campus Martius is always changing out their activities for the season. This winter for the first time they’ve got bumper cars, puck putt, and an arctic slide for everyone to enjoy. Stop by to see the tree across the way too, but be sure to bundle up. This is a great place to stop with family and friends!


The island of Belle Isle has been doing a Holiday Stroll for over 30 years. They host a guided audio tour and invite you to color a coloring page of the winter scenes you see along the walk. The stroll will be going on from December 14th-January 1st.
