Detroit’s People Mover Rail System, pt. 1


Tim, Jim and Cheryl

July 15, 2016 – Today my sister Cheryl and her partner Tim took us to downtown Detroit. We rode the people mover, visited a magnificent casino, and went to a free rock concert on the riverfront, where we looked south across the Detroit River at Windsor, Ontario.
