GM Renaissance Center
The Ren Cen is much more than the headquarters to an American icon. Last week I had the chance to take a tour with some friends visiting from out of town. If you haven’t been on the tour, I highly recommend you check it out and it’s free! In addition to the stunning views of Detroit and Windsor, this family friendly tour will expose you to culture, history, and art within. Some highlights of the tour include the architecture of the 5 story GM Wintergarden and the world map patio outside overlooking the Detroit river. Also, murals of Detroit compliment the history of the city throughout the center of the building. Finally, Danny Lane’s sculpture Borealis, inspired by the aurora borealis, greets visitors at the entrance and will simply amaze you.
