While enjoying a beautiful weekend down at Belle Isle and scanning the Detroit skyline, I realized that I've never really been in any of our great buildings save for the Ren Cen (MANY years ago).
So, I'm wondering, what buildings downtown/New Center area where I can just walk in, check out the architecture, maybe check out some shops inside if they have any, head up to the top floor and get a peek outside, maybe?
Heck, can you even do that anymore in the Ren Cen?

You should go to the Guardian building, its by far the most impressive lobby I've ever seen. I don't know about access to the upper floors though.

Guardian and Fisher are the best. Also stop in Cadillac Place, Penobscot, Compuware, and the building adjacent to Fishbone's (forgot the name) to see their huge waterfall.

Go to the Guardian between 10:00am and 2:00pm weekdays and ask for Christopher at the front desk. He gives tours from the vaults in the basement to the thirty-second floor conference room. I've said it before, but Chris is one of those people that really make Detroit great, don't skip the tour.

The building adjacent to Fishbone's is the Old Shillelagh, no waterfall there The International Center (former D.M. Ferry building) houses Fishbone's as well as the eight story waterfall. Unfortunately the waterfall has been out of comission for going on two years now.
