SemSeg's Segway experts equip urban explorers to cruise through Detroit at up to 12.5 miles per hour during self-guided tours. A brief orientation covers proper techniques for turning, stopping, and impromptu jousting. Then, motorists hop aboard scooters and travel up to 24 miles on a single charge. The long battery life allows motorists to cruise down the Riverfront, circle 14-acre Hart Plaza, and crisscross the Rivard Plaza in a single trip. Though SemSeg encourages DIY tours, their guides lead weekend tours through downtown and down the Riverwalk.

Fueled by the passion of winemaker and obsessive-compulsive grape-stomper Lisa Berry, Vintner's Cellar offers several wines fermented in Royal Oak. During your tasting, you'll get to sample five different wines from a diverse range of red, white, fruit, and specialty libations. You'll also get to snack on cheese, crackers, grapes, and crackery grapecheese creations while soaking in the lively décor of intermingling dark and vivid tones like a sponge tuxedo. The wine tasting is good for two people, so buddy up or carefully wheel a frenemy's bed to the cellar before he or she wakes up.

The instructors at A&R Aviation showcase the open skies above Oakland Troy Airport as students enjoy casual discovery flights or train to earn a pilot’s license. During instructional flights, instructors place pupils in front of the steering column of a pair of Cessna aircraft—models 150 and 172. The flying machines are kept up to date by an FAA-certified maintenance professional, allowing the student to focus on real world training scenarios without fearing real world technical difficulties, like when nacho cheese is accidentally spilled all over the cockpit.

When A&R's pilots aren't teaching others how to fly, they can be found ferrying people through the skies on sightseeing expeditions. On romantic flights, which showcase the dazzling views of the Detroit skyline at night, couples sip sparkling cider and nibble on chocolates among a sea of rose petals.

Layering freshly sliced rib eye on signature italian bread, Ziggy’s Cheesesteaks crafts a menu of gourmet cheesesteak sandwiches as authentic as the ones born and raised in South Philly. Classic cheesesteaks, blanketed in your choice of cheese and served with or without grilled onions, pair perfectly with a side of whiz fries, a marriage of scholarly spuds and the eponymous creamy canned cheese ($2.49). Ziggy’s regional varieties take thrill-seeking taste buds on a gastronomic getaway with the Brooklyn, topped with pizza sauce and provolone, or the Jersey, stuffed with cheese and french fries. Herbivores and poultrivores can partake in a grilled-veggie hoagie or chicken cheesesteak. All of the eatery's made-to-order sandwiches come in 8-inch ($6.49) and 12-inch ($8.49) varieties for easily transportable meals. You get a variety of food groups in every bite without annoying utensil requirements, prep work, or cleanup.

The Detroit River's international waters stretch out for miles in either direction, winding along the Detroit skyline and kissing the Canadian border. As ships snake their way through the current, they pass lighthouses on small green islands, bridges stretched across overhead, and workers milling about on the riverside docks. Building on 20 years of boating, the captains of the Diamond Jack, Diamond Belle, and Diamond Queen let passengers take in these sights to the tune of guided narration as their ships' white and sea-foam green hulls slice through the water. The three ships have proven impervious to squalls and Poseidon's road-construction crews since their maiden voyages in the mid- to late 1950s, and safely gather up to 250 passengers on their panoramic upper decks or in protected lower cabins. Today, passengers on these storied steel decks can sip beer, wine, and soft drinks or nibble on snacks from an on-board snack bar during tours. Captains also pilot each ship on private group excursions, as well as school field trips past the river's ships, yacht clubs, parks, and docks.
