    Great. Enjoyed learning all the background. Been to BI many times but some of the items I never saw before.

    This is such a great app. I haven't been to Belle Isle since I was a little girl. It was better than I ever remember! This app starts before you get on the Belle Isle bridge. You will learn the history of landmarks that you would never research yourself. It has turn by turn navigation and tells you where to park and what to look at. It explains everything you pass, but isn't overly lengthy. Don't visit the park without this app. You will enjoy the visit so much more!
