This tour features some of Detroit’s premiere residential homes, one of its most bucolic parks and a revitalizing business district. We will explore the neighborhoods of Palmer Woods, University District, Sherwood Forest and Fitzgerald and will visit University of Detroit Mercy’s campus, Palmer Park and the Avenue of Fashion. We’ll roll by a log cabin, Detroit’s Mounted Police Division and the city’s only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home, the Turkel House. History, architecture, green space and current redevelopment will all be discussed.
Bring cash for a rest stop at Detroit Sip.
