DETROIT, MI – If you plan to drop to one knee sometime soon, Detroit and its metro area can help you set up the mood.
The first option is Sunset Point at Belle Isle on the southwest tip of the island with the magnificent view of sunset on the downtown Detroit skyline and the Detroit River. You can also do it downtown at Campus Martius Park, especially around the holidays when they put up a big, beautiful Christmas tree.
During warmer weather, Cranbrook House & Gardens in Bloomfield Hills with more than 40 acres of gardens with fountains, lakes, streams, and flowers, is definitely the spot to choose. Another spot for a garden proposal is the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory with its outdoor gardens and an exotic collection of plans on the inside. Contact them ahead of time to arrange a professional photographer.
For a very Detroit proposal, try one of the several parks along the Detroit Riverwalk or right in front of the GM Renaissance Center, Detroit’s iconic building. You can also arrange the blissful occasion on Parker’s Alley, located near the Shinola Hotel, or on The Belt.
The Fisher Building, often named the most beautiful building in Detroit, designed by Albert Kahn, is a great spot to propose. Another artsy option is the Detroit Institute of Arts right off of Woodward Ave. in Midtown Detroit that is perfect for an indoor or outdoor proposal with its beautiful white marble outside and the Detroit Industry Murals by Diego Rivera inside.
Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, the former home of Henry Ford’s son and his wife, offers a rose garden, flower lane, a lagoon, and Lake St. Clair waterfront views for your special day. Alternatively, you can also pop the question around Fair Lane, home of Henry & Clara Ford. Check out the Greenfield Village as well when you're at it.
Another pick for an antique proposal is the 1,500 acres Meadowbrook Hall in Rochester that was built nearly 100 years ago by Matilda Dodge Wilson, the widow of John Dodge.
