Rev up your engines outdoors with a visit to the Detroit Riverwalk, featuring an array of family-oriented activities including city tours on the Detroit People Mover. Fancy a spin? The Cullen Family Carousel, nestled at Rivard Plaza, is fun for all ages and offers scenic views of the Detroit River. Also, take advantage of Detroit's beautiful green spaces on warm sunny days, where a family picnic at Belle Isle Park is a must-do amidst its zoo, conservatory, and giant slide.

Finally, immerse the family in the iconic Motown sound at the Motown Museum, located in the home of founder Berry Gordy. After all, it was here that artists like Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, and the Jackson 5 got their start, making the city a must-see for all music-loving families.

When to visit

Detroit, brimming with family-friendly amenities, is a fabulous destination to explore any time of year. However, for optimal comfort and enjoyment when exploring outdoor attractions and city festivals, consider summer, late spring, or early autumn visits.

While the winter season brings its chill, it also provides an excellent opportunity to explore the city’s cosy indoor settings like museums and attractions, often at reduced hotel prices. Particularly budget-friendly hotel rates can be found in January, February and April, so families seeking an economical escape should make a note. Nonetheless, do keep in mind school term times during your planning.
