    Ice skating, winter blast, watching the Detroit D drop on New Years; there is always a lot happening here. This is a nice little area in downtown and it's beautiful too.

    In the heart of downtown Detroit, Campus Martius Park is a great place to see an outdoor concert in the summer or go ice-skating in the winter. Be sure to look for the Point of Origin marker!
