America's Thanksgiving Day Parade down Woodward in Detroit, November 26, 2009.
‘Tis the season to be thankful. The Thanksgiving holiday is a perfect time to reflect on all the things we’re grateful for, from friends and family to health and housing. Those items are all on my thankful list, but there’s another important one that rounds out my top five – living in metro Detroit.
Take a minute to look around you. Yes, metro Detroit and our state as a whole have faced some pretty tough times throughout the past few years. But, there are countless reasons to be grateful for living here and having the opportunity to experience all the amazing people, places and organizations that comprise metro Detroit. Maybe we’re not as swanky or entertainment-centric as New York City, but it’s impossible to get bored living in this region.
So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I give you five awesome reasons to be thankful for metro Detroit.
