Join this fascinating tour around Bob-Lo Island — Detroit’s island playground of the 20th Century. Cruise participants will explore the critical role the island played in the lives of Native Americans and Canadians, French coureurs de bois, British military, Detroit’s upper class and the millions of people who escaped to Bob-Lo’s amusement park for a one-day holiday for nearly 100 years. Share island anecdotes and illustrations from Summer Dreams — The Story of Bob-Lo Island, recognized by the Library of Michigan as a Notable Book of 2009. Feel free to bring along your own Bob-Lo stories and souvenirs as we cruise back in time to the "Greatest Spot On Earth".
