Detroit has seen it’s fair share of ups and downs so I was happy to see this destination listed in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Cities for 2018. Greektown is well-known for it’s food and nightlife. There are many shops and eateries around the central part of Detroit, serviced by the “People Mover.” That is a circular metro train raised off the ground that circles a small area of the city center. There are numerous stops of interest and is fun to get a different view of the city for the bargain price of 75 cents! If going to Fox Theater, State Theater, Ford Stadium or the new Tiger Stadium you will need to take a bus, taxi or drive as the people mover doesn’t go right to that area. Campus Martius, which houses the world headquarter of Compuware, has an ice rink set up in the winter. The RenCen building is the world headquarters of General Motors and also houses numerous other shops and offices. The first few floors of the building is set up like a shopping mall with a movie theatre and numerous restaurants.
Detroit has the Freedom Festival around the 4th of July holiday (usually the week before) and puts on a great fireworks display. Numerous lakes and rivers are in the area if you want to explore more.
is on a decades old journey to experience the world.
