As a response to the deterioration of the neighborhood where he was raised, artist Tyree Guyton conceived of this outdoor art installation in 1986. Made almost entirely of found objects, it’s a fun and whimsical wonderland that’s sure to spark conversations with kids about what art really is. Interactive art in the form of a small playground stands on the northwest corner.

Since opening in 1904, Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory has helped Detroit residents escape their urban surroundings and reconnect with nature. Located on the 982-acre Belle Isle in the Detroit River, the conservatory invites visitors to stroll by an outdoor lily pond and through a perennial garden before marveling at the 600-plant orchid collection.

The Social Connection scans the cultural horizons of Detroit and plots to add an extra dose of fun to all it has to offer. One example: Gears and Beers Tours take participants around the city's bars and historic neighborhoods. For more than a decade, The Social Connection has been putting together viewing parties all across the city, in glamorous spots such as chartered yachts, rather than just in houses with their roofs sawed off. The other 364 days of the year, the team stays just as busy putting together network-expanding events such as dinner parties, pub crawls, and craft-liquor tastings.
