A very nice spot on Belle Isle is the Conservatory, the flowers and plants inside is beyond what you could imagine. They have one of the largest collections of orchids, and flowers/plants. There are benches inside. It is a very nice place to walk around and sit. There's also an aquarium, which is nice.
The Great Lakes Museum is also there for those interested in seeing boats
There is also a spot for MI wildlife. There are lots of reptiles, some deer, and a butterfly garden.
