Explore Detroit - Y #atozchallenge

Come along with me and explore the beauty & general awesomeness of Detroit, A to Z !

Detroit Yacht Club was founded in 1868 and is located on a private island along the banks of the Belle Isle Park in the Detroit River. It is the largest and one of the oldest private clubs in North America.  
It started out as a small clubhouse and boatshed.  The current gorgeous building was built in 1922 by the same guy who designed the Gem Theater & Masonic Temple (see my "T" post for both) and the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.   Now you can enjoy a variety of food & drink areas, swimming, fitness centers, tennis/racquetball/volleyball courts, kids' programs, meeting rooms and overnight accommodations.
