We spent 4 days in Detroit and there was still loads that we hadn't done. Hitsville USA, Museums and Galleries, Architecture, the river. We'll worth a visit. We stayed on the route of the Qline and found getting around safely very easy.

Detroit is one of the best up and coming city’s in my opinion. Drop all your prior thoughts on what Detroit used to be because that is no where near what it is. Such an amazing down town environment centered around new business’ and beautiful sporting arenas. Highly recommend going to any sporting event from Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings, Pistons and even a little outside of down town to a Detroit City FC game. Stop into any local bar and it’s bound to have reasonably priced drinks and great food.

Detroit is definitely up and coming, although I'm not sure how fast. It's an interesting place to explore, since there is nightlife but also much abandonment.

This is my hometown. The downtown area is perfect for nightlife. Go to the Riverwalk and just sit by the water. The rest of the city has really good food. History... There's a lot.
