FREE Things to do in Detroit with Kids

Happy New Year!  2019 has arrived and we have had some very mild temps here in the Detroit area.  Today we got out for a nice walk in the woods and over this past weekend I actually ate my lunch outside! While this is great, I must say, a good layer of snow makes for a pretty picture and a fun day sledding.

It dawned on me today that it won't be long and my son will be gone to kindergarten and I won't have those few precious days during the week to do fun things together. It has also been decided that my daughter will attend Pre-K 4 days a week next school year and that means 1 less day a week with her also.  Makes me sad to think I don't have babies anymore. With that being said, I want to make the  most of the days we do have together. 

As I approach my bucket list for 2019, I am searching for FREE things to do within Detroit. As I do my research, I am sharing what I find.  Below is a list of free things to do in Detroit that are kid friendly.  Have fun!
  1. Belle Isle Aquarium (Free) Open Fridays - Sundays 10:00-4:00
  2. Dossin Great Lake Museum (Free) Open Fridays-Sundays 10:00-4:00 
  3. Detroit Public Library (Free to visit) Hours vary check website.
  4. Detroit Historical Museum (Free)

  6. Detroit Winter Blast (Free) Begins January 19th, 2019

  1. Detroit is a very big city, which may offer you different kinds of entertainment. You don't even have to do anything, just look for it in Internet.
