Detroit MI Senior Living
When you think of Detroit today, you probably see images of manufacturing lines, big city buildings and maybe even a Model-T Ford. What you might not see are the cultural, historic and artistic sights that make Detroit a senior living destination.
Let’s face it: we are so enamored by big industry that we often overlook the natural and authentic richness of a big city like Detroit. But Detroit is home to a very rich history and culture.
Live music, the theatre and historic sites galore are all an important part of Detroit senior living. Since the 1940s, live music has been a staple in Detroit, a.k.a. Motown, which is home to a large number of nationally-recognized live music venues, including DTE Energy Music Theatre and The Palace of Auburn Hills.
The Fox Theatre, Music Hall, the Gem Theatre and the Masonic Temple Theatre offer more than 10,000 seats for live performances throughout the year. That’s not to mention the Detroit Opera House, the Fisher Theatre, Orchestra Hall and The Fillmore Detroit, which add a cultural flavor to Detroit’s music and theatre scene.
Many seniors also enjoy the big city’s many museums that showcase the rich history of the nation’s auto metropolis. The Detroit Historical Museum, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and The Henry Ford are just a few of many museums that are perfect for a quiet mid-day activity.
The Henry Ford is the nation’s largest indoor-outdoor museum complex and a national historic landmark. The complex features historic homes, machinery and other exhibits, including John F. Kennedy’s Presidential Limousine, Abraham Lincoln’s chair from Ford’s theatre and Thomas Edison’s Laboratory.
