In Metro Detroit, we’re all about the cars — especially in August, which is highlighted by the world-famous Woodward Dream Cruise! At American House, we’re certainly jumping in on the action. How? By having our very own car shows and participating in the biggest one around.
Did you know our American House Royal Oak residents have the unique pleasure of being able to join in the annual Woodward Dream Cruise? It’s true! With the help of Executive Director Chris Laymac, we’ll be decorating the American House bus and cruising up and down Woodward so our residents can oooh and aaah at all the classic cars.
Our residents love to reminisce about their younger years while admiring all the cars. They talk about what they drove and what their spouse drove. What are their favorites? Everyone usually loves all the convertibles — especially the men — and the younger residents seem to like the Ford Mustangs.
If you’re a car aficionado, too, you can stop by any — or all — of our car shows at several American House communities to admire the cars or bring your own for others to appreciate. Here’s a list of our American House Car Shows:
