Visit the electric eel at the Belle Isle Aquarium, the oldest in the country. Feed the fallow deer at the Belle Isle Nature Center, where a fully accessible, nature-themed playground recently opened. Immerse yourself in the lush landscapes of the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory. Or get schooled on the region’s maritime history at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum.
Ideas for the Isle: Take a snapshot at the William Livingstone Memorial Lighthouse, the only marble lighthouse in the U.S., and at the picturesque Scott Memorial Fountain.
