Welcome to Detroit, Michigan

Situated in Eastern Michigan, the city of Detroit is on the U.S.-Canadian border near Lake Erie. Detroit is a major port city on the Detroit River, and the Detroit Metropolitan Airport is a main transportation hub, too. The Detroit Metropolitan Area is home to a diverse community of 4.3 million people and was once the center of a booming auto industry. Detroit has faced hard times, but recently, it has been called a "city of renaissance." This new nickname is due to successful revitalization efforts. Detroit can be divided into five destination districts, each with unique characteristics.

Downtown Detroit is a cosmopolitan and industrious area with businesses, restaurants, parks, and a walkable riverfront. Situated east and west of Downtown is the historic Dearborn-Wayne region. Northwest of the city center is Greater Novi, a trendy, friendly, and green area known for quaint downtown areas, fine dining, and destination shopping. With rolling green hill and blue lakes, Greater Novi also offers outdoor recreation, such as world-class golf courses. Oakland is an upscale and cultured suburb with tree-lined streets, and then there's Macomb, an active and laid-back mix of fun, food, and nightlife on the east side.

Places of Interest in Detroit

Detroit is best known for two things — cars and music. Known as "Motor City," Detroit is headquarters of the "Big Three" auto manufacturers, General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler. A visit to the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant Museum is a must when in Detroit. It honors the birthplace of the Ford Model T and is the world's oldest car factory building open to the public. Other prominent museums to tour include the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Detroit Historical Museum, the Museum of African American History, and the Detroit Science Center.

Detroit also enjoys a long history of live music and innovation. Also known as "Motown," Detroit gave rise to the music genre of Motown and techno. It also played an important role in the development of American jazz, hip-hop, rock, and punk music. Catch a concert or theatrical performance at DTE Energy Music Theatre, the Fox Theatre, or the Majestic Theatre. Outdoor concerts and festivals are also held in the city.
