A vacation that is spent at one's home enjoying all that home and one's home environs have to offer.
How long have you lived in Detroit? How many exciting things to see or do in Detroit have you NOT seen or done? In this weekly series, we'll explore many of those places you take visiting relatives, but almost never go to yourself.
With the rising cost of gas, "staycations" are becoming very popular...this week, why not make a local sojourn to one of Detroit's "jewels", the Detroit Institute of Arts?
"Friday Night Live" is a series of events at the DIA on, you guessed it, Fridays that features events for the whole family, adults and children. This Friday, there is a concert at 7 pm and 8:30 pm by the Brad Felt Nuquartet Plus, a Drop-In Workshop making simple ball and cup toys from 6 - 9 p.m. (children 12 and under to be accompanied by an adult), and Drawing in the Gallery Workshops for adults and children, making drawings that can be taken home, from 6 pm - 9 pm. There are also guided tours of the museum and 6 pm and 7:30 pm.
If you haven't been to the DIA lately, especially since its phenomenal makeover last year, it is worth a "stayvaction" to Detroit's Cultural Center! Admission is only $8 for adults ($6 for seniors), and $4 for youth ages 6 through 17.
There is information about becoming a member of the DIA, directions, maps, and parking options on the website.
Have fun on your Detroit Staycation!
