Things to do over break

In this being my fourth year attending Wayne State University, I have had the opportunity to see the city that surrounds our campus change immeasurably in just the small amount of time I have been here. These changes include everything from new restaurants, to new businesses, to new forms of transportation such as the QLINE. It has been incredible to see.

And as the stress of finals begins to fade and the semester comes to a close, more free time to do the things you had been meaning to get to all semester becomes available. If you are staying in the campus area over break, and are into exploring and trying new things, one way to fill some of your new found free time while experiencing the new businesses the city has to offer is to try out a myriad of the new restaurants that have recently opened in the Midtown and Downtown area.

Below is a list of some of the great restaurants, new and old, to try:
