28 | VISIT DETROIT | FALL 2017 & WINTER 2018 EXPERIENCE ITINERARIES FAMOUS METRO DETROITERS SHARE FIVE MINUTES, FUN IDEAS. WHEN YOU SPEND A DAY IN METRO DETROIT WITH OUT-OF-TOWNERS, WHERE DO YOU TAKE THEM AND WHY? TAKE 5 EXPERIENCE OWNER/OPERATOR, WOODWARD GUITAR CO. "There is always an aura of excitement and fun when you are in the city, no matter if you have been living here for more than 20 years or you are a visitor. For me, my love of Detroit has no rival, so when my visitors come around, I always have a whole lot of fun lined up for them. Our first stop is Comerica Park, because playing hooky from work for an afternoon to catch up with a Detroit Tigers game definitely tops the list. Along with a game, I usually take my guests to experience a world of craftsmanship from the 1920s at the Meadow Brook estate tour. They are definitely going to be wowed by the designs of the past century. True lovers of the guitar know that when you step into Detroit Guitar, you definitely feel like rock royalty. I always add this spot to the list of places to visit. Food is so important to me, just as it is to my guests. Dinner in metro Detroit wouldn't be complete without a taste of Buddy's pizza. This Detroit-style square pizza is always a hit with lots of high fives around the table. Nothing beats wrapping up an evening like live music at PJ's Lager House, where performers like singer-songwriter Jake McArthur soothe the soul. This is definitely one spot that allows you to feel the beauty of Detroit's music."
