If you wanted to buy RollerCade a gift, you might consider something with diamonds. The family-owned roller skating rink is on track to celebrate its 60th anniversary, having welcomed families to take a spin around its glossy track since 1955. It's a testament to the timelessness of the sport, but RollerCade does its part to try and keep the time-honored pastime fresh. On Friday nights, moms and dads, sons and daughters all roll to the sound of high-energy music as they play skating games, such as shoot the duck, while other weekdays bring their own themed events such as Tuesday night Zumba sessions or Saturday afternoon learn-to-skate classes. Guests can rent skates at the rink or purchase their very own pair at the on-site shop, which also services skates when they've lost a wheel or suffered a flat.

Described by the Wall Street Journal as "probably America's most visitor-friendly art museum," the Detroit Institute of Arts has been building one of the top six collections in the country since it was founded in 1885. Along the way, the institute acquired standout pieces such as Vincent Van Gogh's Self Portrait, the first Van Gogh painting to enter a public museum's collection in the United States. Former director William Valentiner commissioned Diego Rivera to paint the world-renowned Detroit Industry mural cycle in an indoor courtyard—a more lasting tribute to the beauty of labor. In total, more than 60,000 works of prehistoric, modern, contemporary, and multinational art have found a home within the museum's more than 100 galleries.

The institute’s broad range of art comprises not only American and European works but also significant pieces of African, Asian, and Native American origin. An auditorium and recital hall also make the institute a haven for film and live music on Friday and Sunday. Guests can even attend free-with-admission drop-in workshops to make their own unique works of art.
