Whether you’re craving excitement, some pampering, outdoor activities, or a place to have an amazing meal and a cold drink, Metro Detroit delivers. Below are our top four new things in the Metro Detroit area that we recommend getting out to enjoy!

#1 The Big Bounce House America
Fraser, Michigan

While this event has already passed through the Detroit area for 2022, we felt it is still well worth the mention in hopes of it returning in the future. The Big Bounce House America, Guinness-certified as the world’s largest touring bounce house, was recently in Fraser in June of 2022 providing 16,000 square feet of bouncing fun, along with an over 900 foot obstacle course. The bounce house has three main components: Sport Slam; a customized sports arena, The Giant; containing 50 different obstacles, and airSPACE; which features a five-lane slide and 25 foot inflatable alien at the center. Bounce House America is suited for children and adults alike and has entertained thousands with its towering turrets, big air basketball hoops, ball pits and more. For one ticket to entertain the entire family for three hours, this is definitely something that everyone will enjoy!

#2 Godfrey Hotel Detroit
1401 Michigan Ave
Detroit, Michigan 48216

Breaking ground in fall of 2021 with an anticipated completion date of early 2023 is the Godfrey hotel Detroit located in the historic neighborhood of Corktown. This seven-story, 227 room boutique hotel will feature the I|O Rooftop Lounge, which developers are claiming will be “Detroit’s largest indoor/outdoor rooftop lounge” providing breathtaking views of the surrounding area. Located on the ground floor will be a 5,500 square foot grand ballroom, a state of the art fitness center and chef-driven restaurant. The building of the hotel itself will also create an estimated 200 to 300 construction jobs, plus providing another 160 to 200 part & full time jobs starting at $17 per hour within the hotel once it is completed, making it a fantastic addition to Corktown, which is considered the city’s oldest neighborhood and is the center of the current restaurant boom.

#3 Bohemia
100 S Main St
Royal Oak, Michigan 48067

As if you needed another reason to visit beautiful downtown Royal Oak, a fun new Mediterranean restaurant just opened its doors on July, 12, 2022. Bohemia is the latest addition to the family of Adam Merkel Restaurants and boasts a large selection of signature cocktails, wines and Mediterranean foods with a heavy Israeli influence. Another noteworthy difference adding to the flavor and authenticity is that all dishes are cooked over charcoal in an open kitchen. The restaurant offers both inside and patio seating and is wonderfully decorated with colorful tile work, foliage and woodworking, adding to the ambiance created. Connected to Bohemia is another Adam Merkel restaurant that recently opened, Pearl’s Deep dive. Although Pearl’s is primarily a seafood restaurant, serving east & west coast oysters along with a number of other dishes, they do have a very tasty burger. Give either one a try the next time you are in the area!

#4 Sylvan Table
1819 Inverness St
Sylvan Lake, Michigan 48320

Last on our list, but certainly not least is Sylvan Table. Opened in 2021, Sylvan Table isn’t your typical restaurant, as they are located on five acres of farmland from which the vast majority of all ingredients found in their cuisine are sourced in their mission of being environmentally sustainable while leaving a zero-waste footprint. With a hyper-seasonal menu based on what the farm is producing at the time and ingredients provided by local partners, Sylvan Table’s executive chef is constantly updating the menu and taking the farm to table concept to all new heights. The impressive structure of the restaurant was built from materials taken from a 300 year old barn previously located in Maine that was deconstructed and shipped over 800 miles to Sylvan Lake where it was reconditioned and reconstructed to create the bones of the restaurant. This resulted in creating a rustic, large, yet intimate dining experience providing multiple dining areas including an intimate glass solarium and a mezzanine that overlooks two downstairs open dining spaces, bar, and open kitchen with an eight foot wood-burning grill. Additional seating is also available on their outdoor patio. Open for dinner every day of the week, with brunch hours on weekends, this new addition to the area is something that you must go try for yourself.
