If serenity is what you crave, head over to William G. Milliken State Park, located on the Detroit River. A lighthouse welcomes visitors to the park, which was established as one of the first urban parks in Michigan.
The area features natural wetlands, making it a prime spot to see a songbird or two. Watch sailboats glide along the waterfront or roam the grounds, which are filled with vibrant flowers. Visiting this treasure won’t set you back a penny- there’s even complimentary parking at Rivard Plaza.
