This is a very Big city. Kinda feels like a ghost town if you think back to what it used to be. Still worth a visit.

We went for a conference and were very surprised at some of the extraordinary restaurants and buildings. The Renaissance Center/Marriott is something unique.

We were there on a warm weekend in early June and found downtown full of little pop-up parks with tables and chairs to invite people to hang out. Had one road blocked off to create a mini-park with food vendors, a beer garden and games...More

Detroit's downtown has been rejuvinated, and is beautiful. You can walk or drive through the area and see beautiful, renovated buildings. Do not go too far away from the center, as the immediate surrounding areas are "ruins" and may not be safe - certainly not...More

I absolutely LOVE downtown Detroit. There is so much history there. I enjoy the various eateries, shops and especially the night life. There is sort of an "artsy" vibe going on there. There are live bands, hotels, museums, casinos, wineries,spas,art galleries.... Parking can cost $10-$30,...More
