USA Today names Detroit one of America's best riverfronts

Posted By on Fri, Oct 24, 2014 at 9:09 AM


Readers of USA Today recently voted Detroit as one of the top 10 riverfronts in the nation, and we must say, we do agree with the results. 

Via USA Today:
The riverfront redevelopment in Detroit, a city with 14 miles of of shoreline along the Detroit river, is one of the city's most exciting initiatives. Stretching for 5.5 miles from the Ambassador Bridge to the Bell Isle Bridge, the Detroit International RiverWalk includes a cruise terminal, marina, several parks, restaurants, shops, and hotels. In warmer months, the riverfront parks play host to festivals and community literacy and fitness programs. 

For the record, the RiverWalk only extends to Rosa Parks, not the Ambassador Bridge, but hey, we won't be too harsh on USA Today this time.

As we usher in one of the final warm spells of the season this weekend, now might be the perfect time to get out and enjoy some of our riverfront amenities.

Take a look at the full list of winners, here:

1. Wilmington, N.C.

2. Spokane, Wash.

3. Davenport, Iowa

4. Dubuque, Iowa

5. Pittsburgh

6. Louisville, Ky.

7. Chattanooga, Tenn.

8. Savannah, Ga.

9. Detroit

10. Richmond, Va.
