The new center promises to offer tours and programs including a "Detroit Experience Pass" and a kids tour with the Michigan Science Center.
In the three years before D:hive split to become two separate entities, the program took over 30,000 people on tours of the city and its attractions. DXF's executive director Jeanette Pierce says the new welcome center will help the program offer even more to folks hoping to explore Detroit's limitless possibilities.
According to a press release the new center will include old amenities as well as new.
The new DXF Welcome Center will continue to help individuals find information, connections, and key tools needed to live, work & engage in the city whether they’ve been here a day or a lifetime. DXF will also continue to offer free Downtown Walking Tours every Saturday at 2pm, Community Bus Tours 1st & 3rd Saturdays and monthly bar tours as well as customized private tours.
Activities are planned from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the center's opening day. They include a breakfast sponsored by the Detroit Institute of Bagels, Lunch by CK Mediterranean Grill and Cottage Inn, snacks from Golden Fleece, a happy hour sponsored by Firebird Tavern and Angelina Italian Bistro, and a pre-St. Paddy's Day bar tour put on by the Downtown Detroit Partnership.
