It's a good way to exercise or just chill by the river while looking at the border between the U.S. and Canada. There are some food places.

The city's groovy waterfront path runs for 3 miles along the churning Detroit River, wandering past Hart Plaza, the RenCen, cafes, parks, outdoor theaters, riverboats and fishing holes.
