This list, capped neatly at 100 and presented in no particular order, is our determination of everything everybody should try at least once. We aimed for events that somehow round out and complete everybody’s Detroit experience. From sports to recreation to culture high and low, you might be surprised by what’s on our list that you haven’t done yet. By the time you’d tried all of them, it’s our hope you’d have challenged some preconceptions (we all have ’em), rubbed elbows with new friends, and come out wiser.
We welcome readers to submit letters regarding articles and content in Detroit Metro Times.

No attachments will be considered. Writers of letters selected for publication will be notified via email. Letters may be edited and shortened for space.
