LOCAL GUIDEBOOK SECRET DETROIT OFFERS A VARIETY OF WAYS TO EXPLORE THE CITY THIS SPRING
DETROIT, MI—The warmer spring weather means more outdoor activities in the Detroit area. Karen Dybis, author of Secret Detroit: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure has put together the definitive list of the lesser-known aspects of the city and its history, and it's full of fun things to do in the coming months. Below are some suggested spring activities straight from the book itself:
• Refresh and rejuvenate at the Psychedelic Healing Shack, a "healing center" that combines a café with a holistic chiropractic practice.
• Spend a rainy spring day at the Detroit Institute of Arts, home of the first Vincent van Gogh painting to enter a U.S. museum collection, Self Portrait with a Straw Hat.
• Find local produce, products, and more at "The Sheds," hulking open-air markets that are part of the National Registry of Historic places.
Michigan native Karen Dybis is a Metro Detroit journalist who has blogged for Time magazine, worked the business desk at The Detroit News, and jumped on breaking stories for a variety of publications. Dybis, a local history buff, is the author of two other books: The Ford-Wyoming Drive-In: Cars, Candy & Canoodling in the Motor City and Better Made in Michigan: The Salty Story of Detroit's Best Chip. Her favorite secret writing spot is the Kresge Court inside the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Karen would be happy to discuss the springtime activities mentioned in the book. Please contact Don Korte at to arrange an appearance or interview.
