Detroit Yacht Club
Have you ever visited the Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle? It is a beautiful spot for elegant parties. Founded almost 150 years ago, it is one of the oldest and classiest yacht clubs in the nation. The designer of the club, George Mason, also designed the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. The current clubhouse dates back to 1922 with an adjacent olympic size swimming pool. They have about 350 boat slips. You can catch a ride to the yacht club on the Spirit of DYC shuttle which leaves from Kean's Marina on Jefferson on the weekends Memorial weekend through Labor Day.
