    After you have picked up your picnic basket from Rose's Fine Foods, head over to Belle Isle for a beautiful picnic. Just make sure to watch out for goose poop!

    Although it boasts nearly 100 acres, not many know it is the largest city park in America. Complete with golf course, beach, Giant Slide, maritime museum, botanical garden and more.

    The island was landscaped in the 1880s & served as a staging ground by the U.S. military during World War II for a re-enactment of a Pacific island invasion by the Navy and Marine Corps.
