One of the great things about Detroit is that you are so close to some of the most famous bodies of water in the United States, the Great Lakes, and apartment-ites should try their best to take full advantage of this and visit these aquatic wonders whenever possible. One fantastic way to do this is to visit the Lake Erie Metropark, a way to take in the beauty of Lake Erie, while also having a good time, with boating, swimming, fishing, even golfing. There is no end to the fun you can have just off the shores of one of the most gorgeous lakes in America.
When you reach the park on the shores of this gorgeous lake, you will find over sixteen hundred acres worth of fun and excitement. For those wanting to take in the beauty of nature, there are numerous opportunities for bird-watching, with plenty of waterfowl, as well as birds of prey. Lake Erie is one of the top spots for hawk-watching in the United States, and is host to Hawkfest every September, which celebrates the infamous bird of prey. There are also a number of nature trails around so you can check out the native flora and fauna of the region without interruptions from technology or industry. If you want to rough it, there are also places for you to set up your tents. For water recreation, there is a marina perfect for boating, as well as plenty of places to fish, and you can take a dip in their wave-pool if you are in the mood for a swim.
For those looking for other kind of recreational activities, don't you sweat. During the summer, they have plenty of courts just priming for some basketball, tennis and volleyball, and during the winter, they have 4.25 miles of groomed space perfect for cross-country skiing. If that's not enough, they also have a 6,500-yard, 18 hole, 72 par golf course, with full service, including golf carts and hand carts, and beer and wine served at the entrance.
If you're looking to take in the beauty of the Great Lakes, why not have a great time doing it? Lake Erie Metropark, just a few short miles from Detroit, is the perfect place for Detroit apartment-ites to spend their lazy afternoon, relaxing or playing in the beautiful Michigan countryside, alongside one of America's greatest wonders.
