So you can't see us very well. But I think that has to do with the fact that Rosa (age 3.5) was taking the photo and she did really well considering! We are at the Fox Theatre in Detroit. Built in the late 1920's the Fox Theatre was the flagship movie palace to the Fox Theatre chain. Built with an integrated speaker system for movies and it's ornate interior design it continues to host hundreds of performances each year. Just this year we have been to the Fox to see Peter Pan and Sesame Street Live!. The Fox Theatre was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989
Across the street is Comerica Park (home of the Tigers) and Ford Field (home of the Lions). Comerica Park replaced Tiger's Stadium in 2000 and hosts a Ferris Wheel, a Carousel, sculptures, a walk of fame and a huge liquid fireworks fountain. It is a simply amazing adventure. Too bad today was not a game day:( Sorry Stanley!
I am not sure you can talk sports in the D (that is what locals call Detroit), without mentioning the Red Wings, after all we are Hockeytown.
Here is Stanley and Kris Draper. He played for the Detroit Red Wings from 1993 to 2011. The team won three Stanley Cups during that period.
We headed over to Grand Circus Park on our way to the People Mover. We stopped to take pictures in front of some of the statues in the park.
Hazen Stuart Pingree was a four-term Republican mayor of Detroit (1889–1897) and the 24th Governor of the US state of Michigan (1897–1901). A Yankee who migrated from New England, he was a social reformer who battled corporations and was an early leader of the Progressive Movement.
Here is Rosa and Stanley on the People Mover. This is Detroit's mini subway. The automated cars stop at 13 total stops that circle Downtown Detroit. The cost is $.75 per ride. In the background you can see the Ambassador Bridge, this is the only place in the US where you can go south to get to Canada!
