    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.

  • Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit
    For an art museum, the flat, cracked facade of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) is shockingly stark, yet there's beauty in its realness. The walls that once framed an abandoned car dealership now host Barry McGee's "Untitled" mural of writ-large graffiti on the building's exterior, greeting people with an uncompromising sense of honesty that permeates through to the art collection within. MOCAD's informal approach to art exhibition shares a kindred spirit with few other museums, with exhibits that swap museum-imposed artifice for relatable, raw beauty. That didn't go unnoticed by The New York Times, who hailed the collection for "seeing the seediness, and celebrating it." Never straying from a mission to present contemporary works that reflect the current culture, inspire dialogue, and engage the community, MOCAD's stunning exhibitions narrate the history and future of the Motor City. Public programs such as lectures, literary readings, live music performances, films, and children's educational activities further engage visitors, and the MOCAD store offers exclusive t-shirts, magazines, kid's toys, and jewelry.

  • Ford Piquette Avenue Plant
    More than 100 years ago, the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant was on the cutting edge of innovation?the first 12,000 Model Ts were made on its premises. But over the years, the "Birthplace of the Model T" was neglected, and in 1997, afraid that the bulldozers were lurking around the corner, ready to raze the premises, a committee was formed to investigate saving the plant. The Model T Automotive Heritage Complex purchased the New England?mill-style structure two years later, transforming it into an auto museum and National Historic Landmark. Today, the museum is one of the oldest automotive plants open to the public in the city of Detroit. The venue?s exhibits chronicle not only Ford?s rise to the forefront of the automotive industry, but also lesser known tales. Visitors can learn about other car models built there, such as the Model N, and about other automakers, such as Wayne and Brush.

  • Rollercade
    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.
