Ok, so i'm probably going to be ignored because i'm so young but it's worth a shot...

I usually spend my weekends downtown or in the suburbs, which is starting to become very tedious and time consuming. So i'm looking for some interesting things to do in Northwest Detroit.

Even though Im starting to doubt there is such a thing.

Thanks in advance.

Or take a walk around outer drive and Livernois.

If you are bored of downtown you could find a lot of interesting things to do in the Cultural Center Area.

Walking / biking / driving through some of the neighborhoods in northwest detroit can be great fun too.

Palmer Woods, Sherwood Forest, Green Acres, Rosedale Park, the University District, are all great neighborhoods for a spring stroll.

Or maybe you're too young to appreciate neighborhoods? ;)

Hello SSS..Could you maybe be a little more specific? What kind of "interesting things" are you looking to do? You're right, the options are rather limited out this way. As Jsmyers pointed out, the Redford Theatre is a lot of fun and I know of a couple of slighlty seedy good-time bars and at least one excellent soul food restaurant on the northwest side, if you're into that kind of thing.

I'm sure some one here will come up with some good suggestions for you.

Hi Machoken...Ooops, I stand corrected, make that 2 excellent soul food restaurants on the northwest side. I was actually thinking of Teresa's on McNichols and Stansbury. Great food, a well stocked bar, friendly patrons, plenty of old skool R&B on the jukebox...what more can I say?

Ride your bike through Old Redford, beautiful old homes, curvy streets, the Rogell Golf Course to circle.

Great show at the Redford this Saturday night--
"Against the Rocks" the only silent film in which Gloria Swanson and Rudolph Valentino appeared together. This film was thought to be lost for 75 years.

For a range of significant architectural styles, beautiful landscaping (including lakefront vistas), and local and national prominence of the long-term residents, you can not beat an afternoon spent walking or biking in Woodlawn Cemetery at 8 Mile and Woodward. If you go, please say "Hi!" to Mrs. Dodge for me.

Isn't the Bullfrog Bar on Telegraph over there? Or is that considered Redford? Regardless, I've heard it's a cool place to go for a live band and a beer....

Tom's bar on 7 Mile, just west of Wyoming. Smallest bar you'll ever be in, but a real fun place.

Many UD High guys patronize that place, believe it or not. (At least they did when I was there)

There's a mountain bike trail in Rouge Park. If you're going to the Old Redford area by bike, be sure to stop by G&R Bikes on Grand River and Lahser for a tune up, right around the corner from the Redford Theatre.

Since SSS is "young", Tom's bar sounds like some fun. Nothing like a good Detroit bar that doesn't check ID.
