There’s nothing quite like going to a Tigers game. There’s not a bad seat in the stadium and fans of all ages can join in on the fun. Make it a family outing or even a date, either way it’s sure to be a good time. You can view their schedule and purchase tickets on the Tigers website.

Pro Tip: Park at the GMRENCEN and take the People Mover or the QLINE over to Comerica.

Walk the Riverfront

The Detroit Riverfront is a great spot to exercise, ride the carousal or enjoy the sunset. There’s always something to see along the 5.5 mile-long strip. The GMRENCEN tours take advantage of the nice weather by taking guests down to the riverfront. Want to sign up? Just visit Pure Detroit at 12 or 2 p.m. daily.

Go to a Concert

Detroit always has a packed entertainment schedule. Fox Theatre, Majestic Theater and The Filmore have all have concert schedules and tickets on their websites.

Pro Tip: Grab a bite at the GMRENCEN before taking the People Mover or QLine to your show.
