Beyond Downtown Walking Tour – The Villages
Just east of Downtown, The Villages is a collection of neighborhoods known primarily for their beautiful historic homes. The Villages are made up of West Village, Indian Village, East English Village, Gold Coast, and Islandview.
More recently, this enclave has become a hub for some of the city’s most well-loved small business entrepreneurs, drawn by economic growth entities such as Motor City Match and the Hatch Detroit and Neighborhood Initiative. On this tour, we will visit bustling and light-filled The Red Hook Detroit, endlessly innovative, black-owned and operated Detroit Vegan Soul (D.V.S), a DXF staff favorite and 2015 Hatch winner, Sister Pie bakery, a multitude of historic residential architecture, and much more!
Tour begins promptly at 11am. Please allow yourself a sufficient amount of time to find parking and arrive at the location.
We will stop frequently, but please bring comfortable shoes for walking!
