Hop on the People Mover from the GMRENCEN, after happy hour at one our fabulous restaurants and enjoy one of the last Red Wings games at the Joe.

Go to a Show or Concert


Detroit’s Fox Theater has a large selection of shows and concerts for you to enjoy this February. From Rick Springfield to Sesame Street Live, there’s something cool for all ages. All February long you’ll be able to catch The Lion King at the Detroit Opera House, a treat for the whole family.

Check out the Detroit Boat Show

Dreaming of summertime and sunbathing on a boat? Unfortunately, Michigan still has a few more months until summer, but the Detroit Boat Show will help get you in the boating mood!  Learn about the history of boats, attend a free boating safety seminar or simply peruse boats on display.

Go to Autorama 2017

Feb.24-26 at Cobo Center


If you liked the North American International Auto Show, then this event is right up your alley. Autorama is deemed America’s greatest hot rod show, featuring more than 800 hot rods, customs, trucks and motorcycles.

Go for a Run

Feel better about eating all those delicious paczkis by running a 5k through Hamtramck for the 2017 Paczki Run. Run at your own pace and after crossing the finish line, you’ll be rewarded with beer and of course a paczki. Turn it into a weekend to keep the fun going and stay the night at the Detroit Marriott or Courtyard Detroit Downtown.
