Review of Joe Louis Monument

Joe Louis Monument
Ranked #52 of 160 things to do in Detroit
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This is an amazing monument with very good access to the statue. It is bang in the middle of a wide road (Jefferson) but has a crossing near it, so there was absolutely no problem with getting right close up to it.

This is a two minute thing to do, but the big fist is an iconic part of Detroit. Not much immediately around it so drive by or walk by on your way to another attraction in the City

The Joe Louis fist is something to check out. It is located in the median on Woodward across from Hart Plaza. Its a cool sculpture to see in person.

The monument is in a great location but not sure if the message is clear. They could have done better.

I have always seen this on TV, photos, ads, ect, but only knew it was in Detroit. I didn't even know what is was called or stood for. I have looked it up now and it's story is cool. When we were headed for the tunnel to Windsor we saw it. I was kinda excited about it. It is in the middle of the road. We had to turn at it. The only way to get to it is to cross into the road, it is a boulevard so its safe, but disappointing that it's in the middle of a busy road, and not in a park. Being that it is such a symbol of the city I thought it would be displayed nicer.
