When it comes to classic date ideas, it’s hard to top a trip to this historic movie theater, which was first built in 1928 and still features live organ music 30-minutes before each show. Dates can share popcorn (with real butter!) while watching classic films, like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Singin’ In the Rain.
In 1917, famed golf-course architect Donald Ross carved New Rogell Golf Course out of an urban plot along Grand River Avenue, adding yet another gem to a portfolio of courses that also includes Pinehurst No. 2 and Oakland Hills. Today, players enjoy the fruits of Mr. Ross’s labor as they cruise over a bentgrass path that stretches to 6,075 yards from the farthest tees. Two additional tee boxes start off each hole as well, allowing golfers to tailor rounds to their skill level or forsake tees completely and start in a bunker.

18-hole, par 70 course
Total length of 6,075 yards from the back tees

Throughout the week and month, the rink hosts various groups during open skate, family skate, and adult skate session open to patrons 25 and older.
