By: Scott Davis | March 7, 2018

Whether you have recently moved to metro Detroit or have been here for all your life, there are always places to explore. From vintage homes, to newly designed buildings, Detroit is an exciting blend of old and new.

You can experience some of the most beautiful areas of metro Detroit on the Detroit Experience Factory’s Beyond Downtown Walking Tour. The tour will take guests on a guided walk through the Villages, a collection of neighborhoods east of downtown known for their historic and beautiful homes. The Villages include West Village, Indian Village, East English Village, Gold Coast, and Islandview.

The tour is not only a great way to see some of the more elegant areas of the city, but also to discover the hub for some of the city’s beloved small businesses. The tour will visit business like Redhook Coffee, Detroit Vegan Soul, Paramita Sound, Sister Pie, and many more. The combination of the thriving small businesses and beautiful neighborhoods will make for an insightful tour that will make you see this area of Detroit in a new light.
