We understand the challenge of finding the perfect spot to propose to your significant other. Whether you want to pop the question soon or you’re planning the perfect proposal in the near future, finding the right place is essential. Thankfully, our own Dearborn and nearby Metro Detroit are filled with romantic venues perfect for this once-in-a-lifetime event.
To help all you lovebirds out there, here are five romantic places to get engaged around Detroit.
1. Belle Isle
This 982-acre island park located in the Detroit River is a lovely respite away from the hustle and bustle of a busy city. Roam the many paths and find a quiet spot to pop the question at sunset. Or visit the ethereal Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory. This gorgeous glass structure filled with a collection of plants from around the world will make you and your love feel like you’re in another world.
You can even take your date to the Belle Isle Aquarium, the oldest aquarium in the country. Let the blue hue of one of the many tanks offer a peaceful backdrop to your proposal.
2. Campus Martius Park
Campus Martius Park is a Detroit staple with something for every season. No matter what time of year you wish to propose, you’ll find a romantic spot perfect for two. The winter features ice skating, and you can explore the flourishing gardens that come to life every spring. Let the sound of rushing water coming from the Woodward Fountain serve as the soundtrack to your love story in the summer. Or, one of the fun fall events could serve as a great start to a great day of romance.
3. The Ford Drive-In
Travel back in time to a simpler era of sock hops, classic rock-and-roll and, of course, the iconic drive-in. The Ford Drive-In in Dearborn is one of the largest in the world. As you watch images slip across the silver screen, you could slip a ring on your love’s finger. In the winter, this drive-in offers cozy car heaters so that you can snuggle in warmth.
4. The Heidelberg Project
This art installation has become something of a Detroit landmark. Located in the heart of one of Detroit’s urban areas, the Heidelberg Project is an enchanting display of modern art that brings joy to the entire community. You and your special someone can wander through this arts initiative and begin your journey together in a place with real cultural significance.
