Houses and condominiums await in Winter Halter,
a lovely area that's only 12 to 14 minutes from downtown Detroit
via nearby I-96. For weekend golfers, the Detroit Golf Club and Palmer Park
Golf Course lie directly north of the area. North of that sits the 5,600-seat Michigan State Fairgrounds Coliseum, home of the annual state fair. South of Winter Halter is Wayne State University, home of the Warriors and one of the venues for the Detroit Windsor International Film Festival.
Much of Detroit's action takes place downtown in its sports arenas and places such as the Hard Rock Cafe, with its unfussy menu and rock memorabilia, and the very cool Wright & Co. on Woodward Avenue. Enjoy its brick walls and old-fashioned light bulbs as you enjoy paella, crab toast, and Brussels sprout salad. Found just across the river and over the U.S.-Canada border, Windsor, Ontario makes for a lovely day trip.
