The largest city in Michigan offers a wide variety of activities and attractions and is becoming an increasingly popular place to visit after experiencing a revival in recent years. Explore the Renaissance Center, the focal point of the Motor City skyline, which serves as the world headquarters for General Motors. You can take a tour of the seven interconnected skyscrapers to learn the history of this “city within the city,” which offers the chance to shop, dine, catch a movie or even stay overnight in the Detroit Marriott. If you want to delve more into the automobile industry, just outside of the city in Dearborn is the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, and you can also tour the Ford Rouge Factory nearby.
Detroit’s museums offer a fascinating insight into the city’s history, including the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the world’s largest museum dedicated to black culture, the Detroit Historical Museum, and the Motown Museum, housed in the original Motown headquarters featuring recording studies, photographs, costumes, records and more from the label’s most successful era. For the most stunning views of Detroit, and neighboring Canada, take a stroll around the 3.5-mile RiverWalk.
