Quick: a long-lost friend is coming to Birmingham and has asked you for some things-to-do and places-to-eat-and-shop suggestions.
What do you tell him?
We're writing a day trip guide to Birmingham for a summer series called Patch Passport. The other Patch sites in Michigan — from Fenton to Grosse Pointe and more than a dozen in between — are doing the same.
Starting next weekend, we'll offer up a weekly day trip guide to another southeast Michigan town for you to visit. Bet you didn't know, for instance, about all of the unique, locally owned shops in St. Clair Shores? (The , for instance, is a locally owned toy store with an elevated train track that runs, nonstop, the inside perimeter of the store.)
There are more gems to be discovered, too.
But to start, we need to write our own day trip guide to share with the other Patch sites.
So, it's time to share your must-list in Birmingham: Where would you take a visitor to our towns?
