February just got a whole lot more fun.
January seemed to drag on forever with an insurrection, inauguration, and the pandemic still in full swing. We hope you’re doing well as we move into February, a month filled with calendar events to enjoy. We’ve got Valentine’s Day events, Black History Month events, and it’s still winter in the city, so that means the winter festivities are still going on! There are plenty of new activities to start this month off right, and we’ve got a list of some of the most fun things to do in the city this February in Detroit.
Some of Detroit’s top spots to eat happen to be black-owned and operated restaurants, which means that not only will be it be easy to support local black businesses during this Black History Month, but it’ll be delicious too!
The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History has long been a standout place to learn about the contribution of Black innovators and artists in America. Since Black History Month is all February long, you should certainly check out some of the awesome exhibits the museums has planned for this month as well as attend one of its many informational and interactive seminars!
What’s a better winter activity than ice skating? Detroiters can enjoy the ice at Campus Martius Park in the heart of Downtown Detroit this February.
After such a crazy January, fill your February with the calming sounds of classical instruments playing iconic classic pieces or even tributes to some of your favorite artists! It’s the perfect romantic plan for a special occasion or even a unique plan to do with friends and family.
It’s the month of romance, so why not do it right at one of Detroit’s romantic restaurants? From beautiful outdoor dining setups, like igloos and luminaries, to elegant restaurants offering special Valentine’s menus for indoor and takeaway. Italian, Mexican, Modern American or Seafood, Detroits got a little bit of everything, so if you’re worried this Valentine’s Day may be kind of lame, don’t be.via facebook / buddyspizza

This incredibly fun Winter event is one of our favorite things to do with friends and family, no matter what age you are it’s hard not to have fun when you speed down a 600-foot snowy slide built specifically for snow-tubing!
