The Recreation Bowl or Rec Bowl as most know it, is a landmark destination for burgers, bowling and LIVE entertainment in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.
Rumored to have been in business for over 100 years, The Rec has undergone many changes since opening. Throughout its history, The Rec has been owned by five different families. The Fox Family has owned and run the business since the early 1950s when Fred Fox Sr. purchased the Rec to support his ten children and educate them through Catholic schools. All 10 of the children have worked at The Rec at some point and contributed to growing the business.
In 1972, The Rec made a bold business move and purchased a liquor license. Three years later in 1975, Fred Fox Jr., took over the business. Fred, like his father, was hardworking and a clever Fox.
The eight-lane bowling alley is still one of the highlights of the business. Proudly exhibiting its retro mechanics and character, it hosts many parties and seasonal leagues.
