Copy Of Midtown Detroit Walking Tours With Professor Darryl Davis says
Born out of a Social Group activity requested by the group leader, Professor Darryl Davis led a tour after the group had lunch along Canfield st. in the Fall of 2015. The Tour focused North of Canfield St. and it was so enjoyed by the group, the Group Leader asked Professor Davis to lead another the following Spring. The group did that in early May of 2016 and headed South of Canfield the second time. Professor Davis loves sharing information about Midtown and its Changes, Good and Bad. Professor Davis does not claim to know everything about Midtown, Detroit; however, he knows a good bit about Midtown through his research and his network connections. He also has a love for meeting new people and learning about various cultures, within the US and International.
Professor Darryl Davis has lived in Midtown for 9 years and is a graduate of Wayne State University, having completed his second Graduate Degree in Theatre Directing. His first MFA was in Acting from the University of Florida, Go Gators!!! Professor Davis teaches for a couple of the local community colleges and has also taught at his Undergraduate Alma Mater, Western Michigan University, which came as a result of teaching next door at Kalamazoo College. The Tour Groups will be limited to no more than 15 people to make the group more manageable for the walks and make it easier for people to get to know others in the group. There will be two parts, as mentioned above, North Half Tour of Midtown and South Half Tour of Midtwon. Each will take place on alternate weekends. If there is enough demand, it is possible to have a tour scheduled during the week, if you have or there is at least 5 people interested. Contact Professor Davis to make such a request and if he is agreeable and available on the specific date, he'll create an Eventbrite posting for it.
Come on and Go for a Walk With Professor Darryl Davis and see and learn what's happening in Midtown. Feel Free to Grab lunch beforehand at Traffic Jam and Snug, Motor City Brewery, JollyPumpkin, Si Thai, Avalon Bakery, Goodwell's or Cass Cafe nearby. We'll also pass by a few locations where you can grab a snack, scoop of ice cream and so on. It just depends on which half we are touring. The walks will be at a moderate pace to allow for the group to take in the sites...what's the point of the walk if you're moving so fast you can't really appreciate what you're seeing or snap a selfie or pic or two! Wear comfortable shoes. If there is a bit of rain, dress for the weather! If we have enough people signed up, the tour will continue, unless it's dangerous weather, such as lightening...then, the event will be cancelled or postponed. If cancelled, refunds will be given.
