20 socially distant things to do in metro Detroit this winter

Go ice skating

Detroit’s Rink at Campus Martius Park (800 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-963-9393; downtowndetroitparks.com), modeled after New York City’s famous Rockefeller Center rink, has maintained its 17-year tradition, but with some changes due to the pandemic. Capacity is capped at 25 skaters for a one-hour session, and guests are asked to buy tickets online ahead of time, which start at $11 for adults and $9 for children 12 and under, while skate rental is $5. Mask-wearing and social distancing are mandatory. The rink is open seven days a week through March 7.

When the word “coronavirus” first started appearing with frequency in national headlines around this time last year, would you ever have imagined that you’d be largely locked inside a year later as a pandemic continued to grip the U.S. for months on end? We honestly can’t remember how we thought this was all going to shake out, but after watching Contagion (2011), yeah, we guess this makes sense. Well, the good thing is that the incompetent Donald Trump is officially out of the White House, the COVID-19 vaccines are starting to be administered, and, well, that’s reason enough for celebration. The bad news is that most of us won’t be able to get vaccinated for months, so it’s looking like another Michigan winter without many of the usual things that help to make it bearable. That doesn’t mean there’s absolutely nothing to do. Here’s a roundup of some socially distant ways to kick it while we wait for our vaccines.
