Belle Isle  
Zoos, fountains, memorials and all sorts of activities, Belle Isle is an ideal location for multiple make out sessions. Right along the Detroit River, Belle Isle is the place for the picturesque saliva exchange with a view of the Detroit skyline and a sunrise or sunset; E. Jefferson & E.

People Mover
As Flo Rida sings, “You spin my head right round, right round.” Definitely a different context in our case, but who wouldn’t love making out while making circles around Downtown Detroit? At 75 cents per ride, if you’re on a budget, this is the best place to snuggle up with your date (or maybe a stranger, though we wouldn't suggest that), and snog while getting an above ground view of the city. thepeoplemover.com; Operates Monday - Thursday 6:30 a.m. - midnight, Friday 6:30 a.m. - 2 a.m., Saturday 9 a.m. - 2 a.m., Sunday noon - midnight.

The Fox Theater
For those wanting a truly movie-worthy make out, head to the Fox Theater. One of five Fox Theaters in the U.S., the Detroit Fox Theater was the premier movie viewing place and continues to host a variety of shows and acts. Can’t afford to see a show inside? No worries, just swap spit underneath the giant marquee; 2211 Woodward Ave., olympiaenertainment.com/fox-theatre. (Photo courtesy of Instagram user keith_hasting)

In front of graffiti
Art takes on a variety of forms. Whether it’s actually on a canvas or on a wall, art is art. Some graffiti can be crude, but there are some decent murals occupying various buildings throughout the city that can help set the make out mood. (Photo courtesy of instagram user tlisaacs)

Top of Renaissance Center
The RenCen is home to the tallest skyscrapers in Detroit. The tallest building, the GM Headquarters, houses a spinning platform restaurant, Coach Insignia. Overlooking the city, the view from the top of the Renaissance Center provides the perfect backdrop for, as the Australian say, pashing; 100 Renassiance Center: gmrencen.com.

Campus Martius Park
During the winter or summer, Campus Martius Park is a great place to snag a snog, if you don’t mind being watched by kids, families, tourists, etc. With the ice rink and Christmas tree in the winter or a nice green lawn in the summer, the city park can accommodate your necking needs all year round; 800 Woodward Ave.: campusmartiuspark.org.

The Spirit of Detroit
The giant green man in the middle of the city is the perfect audience for some tonsil hockey. The statue named “The Spirit of Detroit” even puts a shirt on during parts of the year; 2 Woodward Ave., between E. Larned Ave. and E. Jefferson St. (Photo courtesy of Instagram user stargazer06)

Monument to Joe Louis
Close to our “Jolly Green Giant,” is another iconic Detroit monument - The Monument to Joe Louis, better known as “The Fist.” Literally a giant fist hanging in front of Hart Plaza, it provides an interesting yet photo worthy place to tongue wrestle; E.
