Things To Do

I am a planner.  I love making lists and checking items off.  Makes me feel like I am getting things accomplished.  So of course, I started putting together a To Do list of the things I would like to do in our new home town.

A lot of this list will have to wait until it starts warming up in Michigan, but I am getting excited and ready for Spring.  This never ending cold weather is taking a toll on me, especially since we haven’t lived in the North since 2008.  I am ready for flip flops :0)

Here it goes:

  1. Troy Museum & Historic Village
  2. Sea Life Aquarium – this just opened so hoping to check it out when kids are in school
  3. Detroit Tigers game
  4. Detroit Lions game (super excited to be back in a large city with major sports teams!!!!)
  5. Visit Frankenmuth – it’s a little town about an hour from us that is Christmas all year!
  6. Great Lakes Golf and Sports Complex – again perfect for winter since it’s all indoors
  7. Go to the movies – love that we have awesome movie theaters again.  This is one of our favorite things to do and our movie theater in Key West was terrible.
  8. The Library – I went yesterday and it was great for a cold day.  Our library here has a used book store, little shop and even a cafe.  Very cool…perfect for getting lost for a few hours.
  9. Great Lakes Outlets – all indoors!
  10. The Somerset Collection – awesome upscale mall that takes up 2 sides of the street and has a skywalk that connects both sides over the street
  11. Go to a concert or comedy show – there are lots of great venues for that here
  12. Walk around the downtown areas of Rochester, Royal Oak and Birmingham – all have neat boutique shops and restaurants
  13. Troy Community Center – features a fitness center with classes, rec activities and a pool
  14. Nature Center
  15. Parks – there are a bunch of nice parks right around us (they even look nice with all the snow!)
  16. Nature trails
  17. Golfing – there are 2 courses right by us.  Not really into golf, but like going to the driving range
  18. Bowling – always a good time in the winter

So that is my list so far.  I will keep adding more items and letting you know about the things I do.  Can’t wait to get started!
