Stroll Down Woodward Avenue
Do some shopping, get a picture next to the Hudson’s site for a cool before and after picture (in a few years), and make your way to Campus Martius to go ice skating at The Rink or relax in Cadillac Lodge.

Find a show for the family to enjoy – Sesame Street, Pinkalious, and Paw Patrol are coming to town in 2019 – or root for the home team as the Pistons and Red Wings fight for a spot in the play-offs.
