2020 Preservation Detroit Saturday Downtown Tour

May 2 at 10:00 am - September 26 at 12:30 pm

See Downtown Detroit through our eyes

Our award-winning walking tour of downtown Detroit! Explore the plan for the city from the ground up. Way up! Historic high-rises, towering monuments, grand boulevards, parks and plazas are all part of this groundbreaking tour. Spanning over 300 years of Detroit history, see Detroit gems from streetscape to skyline.

Our experienced guides will share the evolving story of Detroit’s vibrant downtown area, from Cadillac’s landing to the most recent development news. As Michigan’s oldest preservation organization, our entirely volunteer-run tours draw curious and passionate Detroiters and visitors alike. 

The tour meets at 10 am next to the fountain in Campus Martius Park, rain or shine.
