Help Us Write a Visitor's Guide to Bloomfield

We love day trips and want your help to write a guide about Bloomfield to share with other Patch sites in Michigan.

Quick: an old friend is coming to the Bloomfield area and they've asked you for some things-to-do and places-to-eat-and-shop suggestions. 

What do you tell them? Would you insist on a visit to Institute of Science or the Art Museum? Or how about enjoying the outdoors at the ?

We're writing a daytrip guide for the greater Bloomfield area for a summer series called Patch Passport. The other Patch sites in Michigan — from New Baltimore to Saline and two dozen in between — are doing the same. 

Starting next weekend, we'll offer up a weekly daytrip 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 daytrip guide to share with the other Patch sites.

So, it's time to share your must-list in Bloomfield: Where would you take a visitor to our towns?

The Bowers school farm, the Barton house and log cabin at the farm, and lunch on the deck at the Moose Preserve!

Thanks Joan, all great suggestions! And kudos for including the good food recommendation, which shouldn't be overlooked in the guide we're trying to build.

Definitely a visit to the Cranbrook grounds and museums. A meal at Pasta Fagiole is always a good choice, too. Check out the Kirk in the Hills architecture. That's just in Bloomfield Hills.
