The Michigan Military Technical and Historical Society preserves—for current and future generations—the efforts, artifacts, and stories of the Greatest Generation. Established in 2011, the museum sheds light on the role Michigan played in the 20th Century conflict, showcasing the state's civilian and military personnel. Though it has exhibits of vehicles, camp sites, and bunkers, the museum offers much more than just various displays. Visits become interactive thanks to monthly roundtable discussions, frequent lectures, and even WWII re-enactments packed with enough intensity to re-create war scenes or the deadliest of water balloon fights. Museum guests can step back for a second, too, and enjoy movie nights or stop into the gift shop for Michigan- and WWII-themed goods.

Within a private, boutique-style gym exuding a familial vibe, Bodymorph Gym takes its clients back to workout basics. The personal trainers on staff prize simplicity over an abundance of doodads and gimmicks, exclusively leading private sessions and small group boot-camp classes. The elasticity of the programs, however, stretches to accommodate each participant's various goals, from weight loss to enhanced athleticism to improved posture to healing.
During indoor classes, trainers eschew the all the shouting and court-martialing of traditional boot camps. They help sculpt physiques with modern equipment—such as strength machines, stability balls, and free weights—from the cozy confines of a homey studio. Diet plans can supplement exercises on the side, and music and a disco ball lend a festive atmosphere to workouts.

In 2000, Ric Geyer bought an abandoned building in the middle of Detroit, but had no plans to raise another hotel or trendy restaurant. His goal was innovation—or rather incubation. In the following years, he transformed the space into an arts incubator called the 4731 Gallery, a place where painters, photographer, and designers could come together to share ideas, hold parties and exhibitions, and work to further their craft.
When Derek Weaver, who managed the gallery, heard that his neighborhood was labeled one of the 15 poorest in the country, he decided to change public perception. Working with the graffiti artist Sintex and fine artist Sydney James, Derek launched the Grand River Creative Corridor project to create more than 100 murals and outdoor gallery exhibits. Today, more than 50 artists and 300 volunteers have contributed their time and talents to ornamenting a half-mile stretch of Grand River Avenue with colorful designs and playful characters. By the time the project is complete, the artists will have painted murals on 15 buildings, designed an outdoor gallery at a bus stop, and cleaned up overgrown weeds and trash. Each mural is painted with the consent of the local business owners, and installations reflect their line of business to increase exposure while revitalizing the neighborhood.
