Visiting Detroit | Spring 2015
Motor City revs up for the most exciting season of the year with a multitude of special events, festivals, pro sports, and activities. Visitors stay in communities like Livonia, Allen Park, and Woodhaven to be outside of the hustle and bustle without sacrificing convenient access to downtown Detroit attractions and landmarks.
Sports fans know the climactic ends of two major seasons are quickly approaching. The Detroit Pistons are busy defending home court at the Palace of Auburn Hills, select evenings through mid-April. Witness high-flying NBA action as the Pistons take on Eastern Conference rivals like the Atlanta Hawks, on March 31st, and the Charlotte Hornets, in the last home game of the season on April 12th.
As the weather warms and the snow melts outside, the Detroit Red Wings are doing their part to heat up the ice inside Joe Louis Arena, hosting some of the toughest teams in the NHL in the final stretch of the 2014-2015 season. The Red Wings are Stanley Cup contenders this season, so late-season matchups, like March 28th's versus the Tampa Bay Lightning, promise to pack plenty of power plays – and maybe even some punches.
Then, after making an impressive run to the playoffs last year, reigning American League Central title holders, the Detroit Tigers, return for the 2015 MLB season. After the home opener at Comerica Park on April 5th, the season goes all summer and into fall – check the schedule during your Detroit-area visit.
You won't find any tigers, but there are a wealth of reptiles, amphibians, mammals, fish, and invertebrates at the Belle Isle Nature Zoo, east of downtown in the Detroit River. In addition to the zoo, Bell Isle is home to the Dossin Great Lakes Museum, the James Scott Memorial Fountain, Borreal Wetlands Forest, and the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory – and springtime's warmer weather means now's the perfect time for nature lovers to visit.
Get in touch with the cultural melting pot that is Detroit by being a part of Art X Detroit 2015. Showcasing works created by the 2013-2014 Kresge Eminent Artists and Artist Fellows, AXD is a 10-day festival of dance, literary, musical and theatrical performances, film screenings, visual arts installations, workshops, and more, held in venues across midtown Detroit, April 9th through 26th.
Just south of downtown Detroit in the Detroit River, Grosse Ile draws big crowds with Islandfest 2015, May 29th through 31st. Kick off summer with a smorgasbord of small-town, family friendly fun, from live music, food and beverages, a parade, car shows, fireworks, historical tours, aircraft displays, to a fine arts show, kids' fun, and so much more. What better way for the whole family to celebrate the season during a Detroit-area visit?
