One day in Detroit

A friend of mine posted a question on Facebook that I wanted to repeat here. He asked, "What's your pick for most essential experience to have in Detroit if you're here for just one awesome day?"

Most people responded things like Eastern Market, the RiverWalk, Campus Martius Park, and so on. A few people suggested experiences like taking in a Detroit Tigers. Lions, Pistons, or Red Wings game (depending on the season when this awesome day is supposed to happen).

Quite frankly, I told my friend, I was reminded of what a park ranger replied when someone asked what he would do if he only had one day at Yosemite National Park.

According to legend, the park ranger thought for a moment before declaring, "if I came all the way here and could only stay for one day, I'd probably just sit right down on that bench over there and cry."

But, yeah - any of those other responses work. too.
