Any way you spend it, a day on the Detroit Riverfront is regularly rated one of the city's top summer attractions. You can stroll through a conservancy for some serenity among the city bustle, set aside your vanity to don a helmet and join a Segway tour or grab lunch while you take in the view.
If you haven't checked out the riverfront lately, you should. There's plenty of fun to make a day of it, and — bonus — most of it doesn't cost a dime. That includes the free summer concerts on the shores of the Detroit River Friday nights from July 11-Aug. 15, when the GM Renaissance Center and 94.7 WCSX-FM host its ninth annual Chevrolet Rockin' on the Riverfront.
