Summer is almost over, and there’s still lots to do before school starts! Make the most of the time at home with your kids, and follow along with LittleGuide Detroit to discover events, activities and classes near you.

1. Unwind at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House

The Ford House is one of our favorite places to spend a beautiful day relaxing and exploring with our family – and with the newly opened visitor center, now is the perfect time to plan a visit.

3. Spend a Day at Belle Isle

With the Belle Isle Aquarium and Belle Isle Nature Center back open – now is the perfect time to head to Belle Isle in downtown Detroit. And while you’re downtown, head over to the Outdoor Adventure Center, which just reopened too!

4. Plan an End of Summer Bash

Since school starts in a few weeks, plan an end of summer fun day full of unique family fun! iFly Detroit just opened and is perfect for adventurous families who want to “fly.” Or pamper your little ones with a fun “mommy + me day”.
