From an evening of play at Punch Bowl Social to strolling the Dequindre Cut, it is an art-as-itinerary hop onto the bandwagon of coverage of America's Comeback City. But if you ever find yourself in Detroit with a day to kill, or if you've somehow missed the highlights of the local street art scene, we can think of worse ways to explore the city.
